After years of planning and fundraising, our major works to renovate Stretford Public Hall’s ballroom have started!
Stretford Public Hall was saved by the Friends of Stretford Public Hall (FOSPH) and its community shareholders almost five years ago. At the time, it was clear the Hall would need considerable investment to enable it to function as a successful and financially viable community building. The new building improvements should enable us to increase our revenue from room hire and events; insuring that this beautiful building stays at the heart of our local community.
The current works include further restoring and decorating the Ballroom, adding two new kitchen and serving areas, and adding much needed accessible toilet facilities. In addition, the Ballroom’s lighting is being replaced and work will be undertaken to improve heating and ventilation.
As with all historic building, this building work involves careful liaison between ourselves, Trafford Council’s Conservation Officer, our architects Buttress and our contractors Rosslee. It is hoped that the current building work will be completed by the end of the year, ready for a whole new year and activities and events!

We would like to say a huge thank you to all of the funders who have made the ballroom renovation possible: Veolia Environmental Trust, the Architectural Heritage Fund, Power to Change, and Viridor Credits, not forgetting all of the community shareholders who invested in the ballroom right at the start!
