Activities

We are now running a series of regular activities to support our aim to develop the Hall in a multi-purpose community hub.

All these activities can only be offered due to the amazing efforts of our volunteers who help run the activities on a weekly basis. If you'd like to help out, you can sign-up as a volunteer here.

Wellbeing Tuesdays

Wellbeing Tuesdays | Tuesdays 

Friends of Stretford Public Hall are beginning renovations on the Community Room and Ballroom. During the renovation period, Wellbeing Tuesdays will be running a reduced schedule of classes from Topaz Dance on King Street.
Each week we will be running different classes according to the schedule below- please do take note of times and location.

2nd October :
9.30am Sivananda Yoga with Emma
10.30am Mindfulness with Catherine 

9th October:
9.30am Pilates with Charlotte
10.30am Groove Stretch and Tone with Bridget

16th October :
9.30am Yoga with Richard
2.00pm Chairobic with Charlotte
6.30pm Circuits with Sammi at Stretford Public Hall Car Park

During these weeks, we have increased costs to keep running the classes. We would like attendees to use the pay what you can system to the fullest- please pay what you are happy to pay for classes elsewhere.

As a guideline for these sessions we would recommend £4 per class or £2.50 concessions.

On a final note- the classes will only be feasible if they are well attended- so please bring a friend if you can!

Stretford Singers

Stretford Singer is our an open, community choir singing a variety of popular, rock and folk music.

Our community choir has been running since January 2017, often drawing in over 50 people to fill the ballroom with wonderful harmonies. Thank you to everyone who has been participating.

No experience necessary and no auditions! All you need to do is turn up to rehearsals on Wednesday evenings from 7.30pm to 8.45pm, pay a £2 weekly donation to cover room hire, and sing your heart out!

If you want to find out more about Stretford Singers, join the active Facebook group or email the choir leader Hannah at choir@stretfordpublichall.org.uk 

 

The choir will be having a break for the summer and will start up again on the 5th September

Community Cinema

Friends of Stretford Public Hall's community cinema is now back up and running with a new improved audio-visual experience.

Every two months we turn the ballroom into a fabulous cinema space for the weekend. The Saturday night hosts a film strictly for the grown-ups, with a fully stocked bar and an immersive element to the evening (such as a glass of wine to accompany a showing of Sideways).

Then on Sunday lunchtime, it's all about the kids - with a family-friendly film and plenty of refreshments to go around. Check our calendar for the next Community Cinema weekend.
