Morton Hall Community Centre is the largest venue based on the eastern side of Macclesfield, Cheshire.
It has a capacity of 200 and can accommodate up to 100 people with tables and chairs. It is available for hire by community and voluntary groups. Facilities include the Hovis Hall which is a large hall with stage, bar area and adjoining kitchen plus a few smaller rooms.
Built in 1939 as a social club for the workers at the nearby Hovis Mill. The large basement has an unusual ceiling, built to withstand blasts, as it was used as an air raid shelter in WW2. There was a tunnel from Union Road into the basement so residents could get there quickly.
Many Macclesfield residents have fond memories of Morton Hall when it was home to a youth club which was run during the period when Cheshire County Council actively managed the building (1972 to 2002).
During recent years the building has been refurbished and facilities upgraded thanks to funding from Awards for All and a number of WREN grants.
Today, Morton Hall Community Centre is a Registered Charity run by a Company Limited by Guarantee.
Reg. Charity No. 1105157. Company No. 4700429
The building is home to many local community groups including dance clubs, fitness groups, art classes, and two Brass Bands rehearsals. It is also used as a polling station for elections.
The hall is perfect for children's parties, fundraisers, and our smaller rooms are ideal for private meetings. Enquiries from new users are always welcome and we will be very happy to show you around.
