The Civic Festhall

The Civic Festhall is a combination concert hall, opera house, museum, art gallery, tavern, wine shop, and faction headquarters, mixed in with a few other services that are best left undescribed. This mash of services makes sense, given that the place is run by the Sensates. Their desire to experience everything includes the arts, but also much, much more. There are tall tales to be told about what happens in the back halls of the Senate headquarters.
With the Civic Festhall as an anchor, the district around it has attracted a number of artistic businesses. There are dealers in artistic curiosities from all the worlds of the multiverse. There are taverns noted for the bards that play there. Other businesses have the finest wines, the best food, or the best of many other comforts. Jongleurs wander down the streets, portable puppet theatres are set up at the intersections, fire eaters belch their talents from the alleys, and wizards craft beautiful illusions for the crowds.
Besides the constant stream of random curiosities that the Civic Festhall presents to Sigil, the Sensates also frequently hold artistic contests, athletic competitions, and free parties simply for the sake of their enjoyment by the general populace. Current Planescape: Torment contests, promotions and surveys provided by the Sensates can be found below.
