Hoxton Hall secures £1.8million restoration grant

HOXTON Hall in Shoreditch has received almost £1.8million in funding.

The grant, from the Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF), will enable crucial preservation and restoration work to go ahead at the unique 149-year-old musical hall.

The Grade II* listed building was built in 1863 and is one of only four theatres of that era that still survive in the UK.

Hoxton Hall Group Director, Hayley White, said: “We will commence restoring and modernising to ensure the building is fit for purpose and curate a permanent exhibition from our archive celebrating the culture of the East End, so that we can welcome over 40,000 visitors per year. Exciting times.”

Hoxton Hall is part of the Young Hackney programme that inspires creativity and self-expression in young people through its theatre and heritage activities.

Sue Bowers, head of HLF London, said: “Hoxton Hall is a much-loved historic building which has stood the test of time and remained at the heart of its ever-evolving local community. 

“We thought this was a wonderful project because it not only restores one of the last surviving saloon-style music halls, creating an expanded and vibrant space for people of all ages to use, but also encourages valuable volunteering and training opportunities.”
