Trafalgar Hall known as Garisson Hall formed part of the military compound of the British during their stay in Mauritius.
Prior to its renovation, Trafalgar Hall was an old wooden building located at corner St Vincent and Farquhar Road, Vacoas. It is one of the few Government Institutions available for the preservation of local culture and its diffusion to the public. The hall is mainly utilised for staging drama activities of this Ministry and is now known as the Serge Constantin Theatre.
Government is focussing special attention on the promotion of theatre and related activities, which is considered to be an integral part of education for the full development of the individual.
