Contact & About

Designed by architect Percy W. Meredith, this striking Art Deco venue was built in 1931 to house the Leith Hill Musical Festival and host renowned composer Ralph Vaughan Williams’ staging of Bach’s St Matthew Passion. The venue was designed to host a range of community events and comprised of three Halls: the Masonic, the Martineau, and the impressive Grand, all of which remain today. The Grand can seat 900 people, with the original stage accommodating 300 singers and a full orchestra. The Halls underwent a large-scale refurbishment between 1994 and 1997, creating the modern, fully-equipped theatre, cinema and conference venue that exists today.
