Our Project is now Complete... !

After many years of tireless work from our dedicated volunteers, we are all proud to announce that Great Torrington Town & Community Hall is Soon to Open !

Come in and see.

Our fully refurbished and modernised building now offers unrivalled facilities to our community. From the outside you will see the most obvious change is the new, fully glazed lobby and office area that used to be the undercroft. Access to all parts of the building is through this new lobby area where you can then explore the rest of this historic building.

The Main Hall.

This grand hall which still has all the historic pictures hanging around the walls has been fully and tastefully refurbished throughout. There is now seating available for up to approximately 160 people in this hall alone in a variety of configurations to suit almost any event and there is access via two wide staircases as well as via newly installed lift. The hall will soon accommodate a stage and has been fully equipped for sound and lighting suitable for all manner of performances. This largest of the two halls in the building can be hired on its own or as part of the larger venue, as access can be separated from the rest of the building if necessary.

The Side Hall.

This smaller hall is located to the side of the main hall and is suitable for smaller events, meetings and group activities. Seating can be made available in a variety of configurations to suit almost any activity for up to approximately 40 people and this hall can be accessed separately from the main hall, directly from one of the wide staircases via a large landing area, which itself is accessed by the newly installed lift. Available to hire on its own or as part of the larger venue.

The Wedding Room.

This grand and impressive room was once the Council Chamber. On the first floor and accessed via a wide staircase or the newly installed lift, it is finished in dark oak panelling and is large enough to accommodate up to 60 people with seating available in a variety of configurations to suit many kinds of events including Weddings and Civil Ceremonies, for which the whole Town Hall is fully licensed.  It is also suitable for many other kinds of events such as larger meetings and gatherings where a grand and distinguished venue of this kind would be ideally suited. Available to hire on its own or as part of the larger venue.

 


Other Facilities.

Our Town & Community Hall also boasts a fully equipped catering standard kitchen which can accommodate the needs of virtually any event the building can host. Facilities in the building will also soon include WIFI access throughout as well as computer equipment and a projector which can he hired for meetings and presentations. There is also an IT room that can be separately accessed and hired as temporary office space for anyone needing to 'hot desk' in a civilised environment whilst in the town.

Our new and impressive glazed lobby area can be made available for pop-up shops and small exhibitions where visibility from the outside of the building is an advantage.
