We are one of the only six surviving examples of a salon-style music hall. A significant capital works project was completed in 2015. This was funded through the My Place scheme through Heritage Lottery. The work included restoring and upgrading the hall and surrounding spaces and improving accessibility throughout the building. Hoxton Hall has now served the local community for more than 150 years.Future
After the extensive renovation of the performance Hall and the surrounding spaces we are excited to embark on re-establishing of a unique mix of professional performance, community and youth participation and enterprise. in this creative hub at the heart Hoxton.
