About Us


Friends of Stretford Public Hall was formed in 2015 to take on the ownership and running of Stretford Public Hall.

We are a charitable community benefit society that is democratically run by its members. Our aim is to run Stretford Public Hall in a profitable, sustainable way. Any profit we make is invested back in to the running and restoration of the Hall.

Friends of Stretford Public Hall employes a small team of staff who run the Hall day-to-day. The staff team are supported by a Board of Directors, elected each year by our members. 

Our vision

We want Stretford Public Hall to become a thriving multi-purpose venue at the heart of Stretford, owned and run by the local community.

Our mission

Our aim is to restore and protect this historic landmark. Through ongoing engagement with the local community, we will host a wide range of activities that meet Stretford’s needs. In partnership, we will help to improve the lives of residents by providing opportunities for employment and involvement as well as access to arts, culture, heritage, and a range of wellbeing services.
