In 1850, The Hamilton Gas Light Company built the Gasworks to fuel streetlights and Hamilton homes.
In 2016, The John and Ellie Voortman Charitable foundation purchased the Gasworks to fuel arts, education, and community. Almost two centuries later, The Gasworks continues to provide light to the people of Hamilton and beyond.
Performing at the Gasworks was special! A great room and great audience. Makes it easy for performers to create. I'm so glad it exists, as live music is in need.
The Gasworks is a top-notch, quiet, well-maintained space that puts the needs and objectives of the community-minded organizations that work here first. The theatre is one of the best sounding rooms in town since the 2020 renovation.
The Gasworks is one of my favourite venues to plan concerts at. The room is small and inviting yet it has a capacity of almost two hundred. I can't wait to organize my next show there.
