What’s on

The hall reopens fully on Monday 19 July 2021 but asks all users to follow the latest guidance on Coronavirus. Numbers will be limited for all events to allow greater distancing and ventilation. Cleaning schedules will be maintained, and when the bar is open patrons are requested not to congregate at it, but to return to their seats. We have managed the pandemic well this far and do not intend to allow vigilance to lapse, while opening as fully as we feel able.

Scarth Hall hosts a wide range of events, open to everyone, and organised by Scarth Hall volunteers or other organisations. Just add your name to our mailing list (via contact us) to keep up-to-date with all upcoming events.
