Some record series that include records of educational work before 1913 will also be found in Queen Mary University of London’s records where splitting the series would disrupt original order.
Admin HistoryThe People's Palace began in 1886, with the purpose of providing an educational and cultural centre for the local community. It was financed by the Beaumont Trust, established under the will of John Barber Beaumont to support the Philosophical Institution that he had founded, and occupied the site of the former Bancroft's School acquired from the Drapers' Company. The Palace was to comprise the Queen's Hall, a library modelled on that of the British Museum, a swimming bath, a gymnasium, and a winter garden as well as schools. The foundation stone of the Queen's Hall was laid by the Prince of Wales in June 1886, and it was opened by Queen Victoria in the following year. The Queen's Hall was used for lectures, concerts and organ recitals, shows of birds and flowers, exhibitions of animals and pictures, fetes and other entertainments which, reportedly, were attended by thousands of people.

The library and swimming bath were completed in 1888 as were the technical and trade schools. The People’s Palace Technical Schools offered a Day School and Evening Classes. The Day School, which began autumn 1887 in the old Bancroft School buildings, was for boys 12+ and the Evening classes were from 1888 open to all in technical, trade and scientific subjects. The winter garden, begun in 1890 and completed in 1892, was also used for concerts and refreshments. The gymnasium, constructed in 1891, had a roller-skating rink in the basement.

However, the financial management of the Palace soon ran into difficulties. It was saved by the Drapers' Company which committed a subsidy of £70,000 over ten years. In 1889 a separate students' library had been established and by 1902 the Governors agreed that the original library should be transferred to the Borough of Stepney to form the basis for the first public library in Mile End.

The People’s Palace Technical Schools changed its name to East London Technical College in 1896. By this time the College consisted of a Day School for boys aged 13-16; Day Classes for men and women at a higher education level in Engineering, Chemistry and Art; Evening Classes preparing students for University of London examinations in Science or entry into Civil Service. The Bow and Bromley Institute amalgamated with the People's Palace as a branch of East London Technical College in 1898; this branch closed in 1911.

East London Technical College became East London College in 1905, the same year a University level Arts course was added to the Day and Evening Classes. The Day School closed in 1906 but in 1907 the College’s application to be recognised as a School of the University of London was approved. In 1908 a Professorial Board was established and the Director of Studies position was retitled Principal. Faculties of Arts, Science and Engineering were established and providing “facilities for research” was added to the objectives of the College.

In 1911 the Visiting Committee of the Palace Governors was split into two to form a Palace Committee and an East London College Committee albeit still under the umbrella of the Palace Governors. This was the beginning of a final administrative separation of the Palace from the College which was formalised under a new scheme sealed by the Charity Commissioners and Board of Education in 1913. From 1913 onwards East London College, which would be renamed Queen Mary College in 1933, was administered separately.

In 1931 a fire completely destroyed the Queen's Hall and it was decided to resite the People's Palace in St Helen's Terrace. This gave the whole of the original site to the College and physically separated the People’s Palace and East London College. The new People's Palace was opened in 1937, providing a concert and dance hall. However, postwar conditions meant that the People's Palace was no longer financially sustainable, and in 1953 it came on the market. In 1954 it was acquired by Queen Mary College.
