OUR SPACES

Theatre

Built in 1863, our Theatre is a thrilling example of the traditional Victorian Music Hall and its splendour. The auditorium boasts original features from the stage to cast iron balconies, as well as period recreation pieces such as sunburners and skylights. New features include a moveable lighting grid, circus rigging points, and blackout blinds.

Our up-to-date technical kit combined with our Victorian heritage creates a versatile space, ensuring your performance or event is one of a kind. A full set of Technical Specifications can be found using the above tab.

Our Theatre can be hired for either a public or private event, but depending on the event type the hiring process is slightly different.

Public Event

We consider a public event any form of performance that involves an audience attending our venue where tickets are being sold (or provided for free) to the general public either by our box office or a third party. For educational institutions wishing to put on a performance at Hoxton Hall, your Hire Enquiry will fall under ‘Private Event’ even if a public audience is due to be in attendance.

All public events are considered and chosen by our Artistic Director, Karena Johnson, to ensure the proposal fits Hoxton Hall’s values of inclusiveness, representation, and community cohesion.

If you would like to have Karena consider your proposal for a public event, please fill in this form HERE. Please note, we get many requests to hire Hoxton Hall for public events, and we cannot accommodate every request. We will try to respond within 28 days of an enquiry, but please know that we are a small team and sometimes our response time may take longer.

Private Event

If your event does not count as a public event, please read about our spaces for hire below, and use our Private Hire enquiry form HERE.
