During lock down we have undertaken all essential maintenance works, carried out a ‘deep clean’ throughout, including seating, and made the hall as ‘Covid secure’ as is practicable. It is now open in a limited way, with guitar, ukulele and arts and crafts classes underway in the main hall which allows for distancing. The bar is available but with table service, but the kitchen is only available by prior arrangement. Private parties are not currently possible. Do get in touch/ watch this space for more details.

On August 9 at 730 pm we will be showing a live performance of Emma Fisk and Hot Club du Nord, who were booked to appear again at Scarth Hall in June. They will play at the Globe in Newcastle, and we will live stream the gig to an audience of no more than 30 people. Monies raised from the £5 admission will assist the Globe and the band, who are currently of course without any source of income. Do get in touch if you would like to join us – admission is only be pre booking so the seating can be arranged, and information held for ‘track and trace’.

Scarth Hall is a Charitable Incorporated Organisation (1176610) run mostly by local volunteers – the hall could not manage without them!

Thanks to the Big Lottery and other funders, the hall underwent extensive improvements between March and September 2016.  It boasts ramp access via electric doors, wi fi throughout, a surround sound system and a commercial grade kitchen.
