Victoria Hall, Glossop

Find out more about the Victoria Hall including heritage information

Victoria Hall was donated to Glossop by Herbert Rhodes and Edward Partington and was intended to provide a free library, museum, art school and a venue for educational public lectures.

The Hall is held in trust for charitable purposes by the Council. This means that although the Council owns the land, it must act in the best interests of the charity and use the hall in accordance with the principal intentions of the trust, these being to use the building as a library and public hall for the benefit of the public.

For many years the ground floor has been used by Derbyshire County Council as a public library with the basement being used by a youth group and the upper floor as a public hall used by a number of community groups. The upper floor and the basement were closed several years ago and, in 2018, Derbyshire County Council decided to relocate the library leaving the building virtually empty and the Borough Council looking for new uses.

In July 2022, we submitted a bid for funding the Levelling Up Fund to see Victoria Hall fully re-opened as a live performance venue building. The outcome of the bid is expected to be announced later this year.
