    This paper summarises work in progress on the digital reconstruction of the structure, space and decorative program of the music hall and annex at Vauxhall Pleasure Gardens c. 1764. The proposed outcome will be a recreation of the space and its contents combining Building Information Modelling in programs such as Revit with panoramic interior views of the larger-thanlife modern-subject history paintings of scenes from and allegories based upon England's victories in the Seven Years' War, marble busts of British worthies and mirrors. The final version of the project will also include a choral and instrumental musical element, as the space was physically connected to the garden's indoor orchestral performance space.
