Venue description

The Hall is a Grade II-listed Victorian building. There is an access ramp to the Hall’s main entrance on Chester Road and step-free access to the building using our side entrance on Dorset Street. We have a lift which services all publicly-accessible floors in the building. We have accessible toilets on both the ground floor and the first floor.  Most large events take place in our Ballroom which is on the Hall’s first floor and can be accessed by lift. Unfortunately, we do not have a Hearing Loop at the Hall at present.

Parking & transport

There are two disabled parking spaces adjacent to the Hall on Dorset Street. We also have two dedicated disabled parking bays in our car park, which is just off Dorset Street. If you are arriving by taxi, they can pull up alongside the Hall on Dorset Street or can use the Hall’s car park for drop-off / collection.

There is a bus stop outside the Hall on Chester Road which is serviced by several local bus routes (routes 79, 253, 255, 256, 263, 272 and 277).

The Hall is also a short distance from Stretford tram stop. Visit the Transport for Greater Manchester website for maps and timetables for both buses and trams.

If you’re travelling from outside Manchester, visit the Trainline website for information about rail travel. Trains connect with the tram at Manchester Piccadilly station.

Assistance dogs

We welcome assistance dogs in the Hall but please inform us in advance if you intend to bring an assistance dog to an event. We will require evidence that your dog is registered with an organisation that is a member of Assistance Dogs UK.

Personal assistants & carers

We recognise that some visitors might require the support of a personal assistant. In these instances, we are happy to offer an extra ticket, free of charge, to deaf and disabled visitors. Please contact our Community Programme Coordinator, Michelle Darwin, for more information about event access for carers:
