We can now confirm that we have hit our maximum capacity for Saturday evening's launch event, based on RSVPs both on Facebook and our website.
For those of you who RSVPd, can you please arrive no later than 7.15pm on the night. After this time, we cannot guarantee you entry, as we will have to assume you are no longer able to attend and will offer your place to those that turn up on the night.
For those of you that have not RSVP'd, we will try our best to get you in but we're afraid we can't guarantee it. Please do feel free to come along at 7pm as it's likely some of those that have RSVP'd won't be able to make it and will be able to get you in from 7.15pm. After that we will have to operate a 'one-in, one-out' policy but you'll be invited to wait in the foyer rather than in the cold!
Thanks again for your support and look forward to seeing you promptly on Saturday!
We are inviting the community to celebrate this milestone and help fund the refurbishment of the ballroom with a launch event at the Hall on the evening of Saturday 4th February.
The event will allow people to find out more about the community share offer and the Hall itself, with Jonathan Schofield - famed Manchester journalist, writer and tour guide speaking at the launch. And as it’s Friends of Stretford Public Hall’s second birthday, they’re bringing the party to the hall with a cocktail bar hosted by Cocktail Stars and music from local DJ Dr Sid.
The free event is to take place from 7pm, kicking off a two-month campaign to raise £150,000 from the community to fund a series of essential refurbishment works which will transform the ballroom so it can host events accommodating up to 400 people. This will allow the organisation to generate sufficient income to run the hall sustainably and importantly pay investors back in the future.
You can pledge your investment ahead of the share offer going live here
7pm - Arrivals with food and drink served to help us celebrate the launch of our share offer
7.30pm - Short presentations to let you know everything about our community share offer
8pm - 9pm - Enjoy the sounds of local DJ Dr Sid and more refreshments from Friends of Stretford Public Hall
