Owned and run by the local community, open to everyone

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.

In 2015, the Friends of Stretford Public Hall took over the running of the Hall. Our aim is to restore the Hall into a fantastic multi-purpose community venue.
