COVID-19 Update


The David Hall is OPEN for classes and socially distanced events.

Numbers of attendees will be limited, seating suitably spaced with a drinks service, all in accordance with COVID-19 guidelines.

We put the safety of our staff, volunteers, performers and customers as our number one priority and we have measures in place to maximise your safety and enjoyment at events.

Based on the Government announcement on Monday 14 June, the venue will continue to operate with the current restrictions. We will wait to hear about further changes to our operations.

Please note that Martin Harley on Saturday 3 June has been changed from One Full Capacity to Two Social Distancing gig. All ticket holders have been contacted.

Fiesta Flamenca on Saturday 10 July have been changed from One Full Capacity to One Social Distancing event with a maximum of 50 tickets.

We look forward to welcoming you back to ‘the small Hall’.’ 

New Flyer Update & Box Office

We hope you have received your copy of the new July – December leaflet.
We are working to reinstate volunteers to cover our Wednesday and Friday box office sessions so the easiest way to book is still via the website.

NB: All events from Monday 17 May – Sunday 20 June are pre-booked only. We are not able to accommodate ‘walk ups’ on the night.

Thank you for continuing to support The David Hall.

Stay safe

Our venerable old building has been challenged by the effects of old age on the roof, walls and associated drainage and protection systems.

To our great delight, our fund-raising activities over the last 12 months have, in spite of the pandemic, been successful.

With the help of a major charity, our generous local councils and many individual donors, we have reached our initial target. We are now in the final stages of contracting with a local building and roofing company with the aim of starting work at the end of May.

The most obvious initial impact is that there will be roof height scaffolding put up before detailed work can commence, so we are hoping both for decent weather and, more importantly, that no further restrictions will be placed on us or the community because of the virus.


Please be aware that forthcoming events may have specific conditions of entry attached in order for us to operate legally and safely. These will be dictated by changes in regulation and agreed industry best practice, and will be clarified once we receive clear guidance from government and industry bodies.
