Capel Hall is perhaps the bit of Burton Street that still looks most like a school. It's best thought of as an activity space, rather than a function space. At 105 sq/m, it is particularly popular with dance and drama groups.
- 105 sq-m / 1130 sq-ft
- Capacity approx 50 - 100
- In the Capel Building
- From £TBC / hour
Between 9am-5pm, the Capel Building is where the majority of our learning disability services take place. Outside these times Capel Hall is available to rent for a variety of purposes. It's a bit rough and ready to be a venue for a posh do - Burton Hall is much more suitable in those instances. Capel Hall is more of a fun activity space.
The Victorian parquet flooring makes Capel Hall a fantastic space for the Morris dancers and the Lindy Hoppers, and the large windows and high ceiling make it a great venue for pop-up galleries, craft fairs and table top sales. It's also a good space for informal community meetings.
Bit of trivia for the films fans - Capel Hall was used as the location for the famous dole queue scene in the 1997 hit film The Full Monty. We commemorated this by recreating the scene 20 years later. Click here to read more about the Full Monty 20th anniversary celebrations.
