Guildford Civic Hall was an arts and entertainment venue in Guildford, Surrey, England. Opened in 1962, it closed in January 2004,[1] and has since been demolished. Many famous artists performed at the Guildford Civic Hall, including Eric Clapton and Dire Straits,[1] and the King Crimson album Live in Guildford was recorded at the venue on November 13, 1972.[2] By 2010, development was underway for a new £26 million replacement facility on the same site,[3][4][5] which opened as G Live in September 2011.[citation needed]

At the 1992 United Kingdom general election, the count for the Guildford constituency was held at the Civic hall.[6]
