Now a grade ll listed structure the arts centre was built in 1883 as a gift to the town by local businessman/philanthropist Daniel Gurteen. Although it was called ‘The Town Hall’ it was never a town hall in the civic sense but a place for the people of Haverhill to go and enjoy choral music. It is now an arts and community venue with such facilities as the auditorium – which holds events, live theatre and cinema – plus meeting rooms, media facilities and a cafe and bar.
The hall is a large open space with a high, arched ceiling and Victorian oak panelling. The stage is ideal for live music and the floor area can accommodate over 250 people for non-seated events, in other words an ideal venue for the Haverhill Beer Weekend! Come and sample a range of ales and a selection of hot food.
