A MEETING has been called to discuss the future of Armstrong Hall, Thornbury's beloved community venue.

The complex on Chapel Street, which includes Armstrong Hall and The Cossham Hall, was closed three years ago in 2020 due to ongoing costs.

The much-loved venue - which first opened in 1972 - was a hub for theatre, music and community groups with a wide range of performances and activities taking place.

The Armstrong Hall Trust, which manages the halls, has now invited members of the public to a meeting next Thursday, December 7. 

It will take place from 7pm to 9pm at Thornbury Baptist Church. 

Trust vice-chair James Murray said: “The trust would like to invite all members of the public to a meeting designed to inform of the recent, current and future work being completed by teams of trust members alongside selected volunteers from various user groups. 

“The meeting will involve a presentation from the trust, a Q&A session and will finish with an opportunity for members of the public to give any input into the current project before decisions are made on the future of an arts performance space in Thornbury. 

“As space is limited, we would request that user groups who are already informed or involved in the project stay at home to allow space for the wider public to attend. 

“We look forward to seeing you all.”
