Working to re-open our hall to benefit the local community

Once home to Stretford Civic Theatre, Stretford Public Hall was built for the local community by John Rylands in 1878. Since then it has had over 100 years of community use until it's closure in 2012.

In 2015 the Hall was based into the stewardship of The Friends of Stretford Public Hall, and our intention is to turn the hall into a fantastic community venue.

We are currently running a community share offer to raise the funds we need to transform the ballroom so it can be used for all kinds of community and cultural activities.
