About Us

The Old Town Hall is a buzzing arts space full of entertainment for everyone. Pop in during the day and see our free art exhibitions or a midweek matinee film. Saturday daytimes are dedicated to the little ones with family films and children’s shows to inspire and delight. For a night out there’s something to suit everyone with music, theatre, film, comedy and dance. Relax with friends in the gallery bar, open one hour before shows and during intervals.

Famous faces

With historic figures such as King Henry VIII and William the Conqueror gracing the Old Town's High Street, it's no wonder that the likes of Jo Brand, Eddie Izzard, Mark Baldwin Dance, The Royal Court, the Reduced Shakespeare Company, Ben Elton, Mark Thomas and Harry Hill have walked the pilgrimage to The Old Town Hall!

The Cellar Club refurbishment

The Old Town Hall's hugely popular The Cellar Club opened its doors to the public again in September 2014 for the first time since 2002, after a major refurbishment including new lift to make this unique space accessible to everyone.
