Opened in 1853, this beautiful Victorian Music Hall in the market town of Settle is believed to be the oldest in the world. A wide programme of music, theatre, comedy and film is supplemented by community events, workshops and indoor markets. The Hall is also available for hire and can accommodate a variety of needs. Victoria Hall hosts over 150 shows every year, plus over 1000 hours of use by community groups, charities, and local businesses. The hall receives no regular grant funding, and relies on donations and the support of a dedicated team of volunteers, plus a skeleton staff, to bring theatre, music, cinema, and community events to an isolated, rural community.
