About Shoreditch Town Hall

Designed by Caesar Augustus Long and built on the site of the old Fuller's Hospital, Shoreditch Town Hall opened in 1866 as the Vestry Hall for Shoreditch. With its high-coved ceilings, Doric columns, large chandeliers and stained glass windows the Vestry Hall (now known as the Council Chamber) was thought of as "the grandest Vestry Hall in London". It is a magnificent Grade II landmark building managed by Shoreditch Town Hall Trust. It was established as an independent arts and events venue in 2004. Since this time it has established itself as a key part of the cultural landscape, filling a vital need for flexible, non-traditional creative space.

No Miracles Here

There's no rule book but as far as they know the aim is just keep going; that's what everyone else seems to be doing. A tale of resilience, strength and the need to just stay on your feet, it presents a sweat-soaked marathon with a Northern Soul.
