Hoxton Hall

ONE of East London’s longest-running community arts initiatives, Hoxton Hall has a colourful history, which is intertwined with the life of the borough.

It was built in 1863, by architect James Mortimer 'with the specific object of affording the humbler classes an entertainment that shall combine instruction with amusement’.

In the years since, the venue served as a music hall, Quaker temperance mission, and air raid shelter before a group of local teachers used the space to develop a community arts project.

In 2015, Hoxton Hall reopened following a £2million restoration project, which doubled its seating capacity.

It now bills itself as 'a home for contemporary variety performance, celebrating its music hall roots as a place for entertainment, whilst maintaining a real connection to the ever changing communities of Hoxton'.

A new artistic programme promises 'high quality performance across the genres of theatre, music, comedy, spoken word, cabaret and dance; alongside nurturing the creation of new works that respond to place and space, exploiting the unique viewing experience of this magical music hall'.

The venue will also continue its vibrant youth arts programme, courses and schemes for adults, children and young people to workshop, develop and showcase local talent.
