Holmfirth Civic Hall description

Community Hall / Business Meeting Rooms / Fitness and Dance Centre / Sports Club - Other / Party Venue

Large 151-300

Holmfirth Civic Hall is an impressive building lying in the heart of the Last of the Summer Wine countryside and is an amalgamation of two buildings – Holmfirth Town Hall was built in 1842 at a cost of £2,200 and had various uses, including a Magistrates Court and welfare clinics. Meanwhile the Drill Hall was built in 1891/2 at a cost of £1,700. Both buildings were purchased by the borough council in 1946 and were reopened as Holmfirth Civic Hall on 7 November 1947. The building is now used for a wide variety of activities including concerts and theatre performances, badminton and fitness classes, exhibitions and conferences, and meetings.

Holme Valley Parish Council acquired Holmfirth Civic Hall via community asset transfer in April 2017 and handed operation to a new charity, Holmfirth Civic Hall Community Trust, formed to run and manage the Hall on a day to day basis. The Trust’s vision is to make Holmfirth Civic Hall an inclusive, cohesive and sustainable community asset – run ‘in our community, by our community and for our community’. The Trust will be responsible for growing the profile and the usage of the Hall and investing any surpluses back into the building, its maintenance and upkeep, ensuring its viability as a community facility for the long term. They operate as an independent body without any political allegiances.

The building is now used for a wide variety of activities from concerts to badminton, exhibitions to meetings and from dances to shows; and can accommodate anything from a small meeting for 6 up to a 320 seat capacity concert.

Our facilities include portable licensed bar, disabled access, lift to all floors and toilet facilities, induction loop available on request in advance, stages in both large and lesser halls, stage lightning and sound system, technical assistance is available on request and car parking is available near by.
