Hoxton Hall is delighted to be taking part in this year’s Open House 2019, the world’s largest architecture festival, giving free public access to over 800 buildings, walks, talks and tours across London.
Hoxton Hall has a rich history. Originally called Mortimer Hall, it was built in 1863 by James Mortimer in the traditional music hall architecture style. Music halls originated in the 19th Century taverns and saloon bars offering food, drink and entertainment. The Hall changed hands several times but always focused on being an affordable venue to entertain the working classes with acts including circus and music. And, even during World War II, it continued to offer activities in the basement and was used as an air raid shelter for the local community.
So come and join us for a free tour of Hoxton Hall, a Grade II* listed Victorian Music Hall nestled in the heart of East London. Our friendly team will be on hand to show you around our stunning theatre which is where we host events ranging from cabaret, comedy, music to theatre performances and which is the only surviving example of a saloon-style Victorian music hall and one of the five remaining in the UK.
During Open House 2019 free tours will take place at 11am, 12pm and 3pm while tea and cakes will be served in the theatre throughout the day.
