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.

    Get involved! Join our Board of Directors

    Have you got the passion & skills we need to help achieve our vision for Stretford Public Hall? Each year we are on the hunt for dedicated individuals who are willing to add their own unique skills to our Board of Directors. Friends of Stretford Public Hall’s Board of Directors is elected by and from the members. Democracy is the lifeblood of co-operatives and we want as many of our members as possible to get involved in the election process, either standing as candidates, nominating candidates or voting for candidates. There is no person specification for the perfect director. In fact, we want a real balance of skills and personalities to help take FOSPH forward. If you are passionate about co-operatives, community ownership and have the skills and knowledge to make a positive impact, you could be just the person we need... We currently have vacancies for three new Board members, to join the Board in October 2019. In particular, we are hoping to recruit a new Treasurer. We're also really keen to appoint individuals with skills and experience relating to human resources, and marketing and communications. Interested? Download our Information Pack here If you want further information, or would like to speak to either a current member of the Board of Directors and/or an officer of FOSPH, please contact our Secretary Petra Morris by email at petra@stretfordpublichall.org.uk An online application form is available here or you can complete a hard copy which is available within the Information Pack. The deadline for applications is Friday 4th October 2019.

    Trafford Live

      On Sunday 1st July we attended Trafford Live - and we took our building with us!  We wanted to tell everyone about how Stretford Public Hall is a co-operative, owned and run by our members- over 800 of them! We ran a little competition where we asked children to design a brick with their name and add a sticker to our Stretford Public Hall representing all the members that make up the building.    We had some great entries and it was tough to choose a winner but we're happy to announce that Matilda Yarwood, who is 8 years old won a £10 gift card for her entry.   Big thanks to all of you who visited us at our stall, and to the volunteers who helped us run it- Hope to see you all in the building soon!
