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.
