Lansdown Hall is a Grade 2 listed building, built in 1879 for the people of Stroud.
It was purchased by Stroud Town Council in 2011 as a community venue for the town.
The Town Council has invested in a number of major improvements to the building, securing it for the future benefit of Stroud residents.
Works so far have included:
- the development of a fully accessible gallery
- essential maintenance of stonework, gutters and windows
- an extension providing a new green room and storage
- air to water heat pumps for extra efficiency
- access improvements
The building is leased to and managed by Lansdown Hall and Gallery a small charity run by a Board of Trustees, with part time staff and many enthusiastic volunteers.
The venue is used as a community centre for Stroud and is available for evening events and daytime classes including: music, drama performances, film screenings, private parties, dance groups, tai chi, pilates, choirs and youth drama.

Lansdown Hall Consultation
In June and July 2016, the Town Council and Lansdown Hall and Gallery held a consultation on the ongoing project to renovate and improve the building.
Fifty users of the venue responded, including sixteen who had hired either the Hall or Gallery.
There was a great deal of support for the improvement works that have taken place so far, and the responses on the proposals for the next stage will be really helpful as the Council and managing Trust decide on the priorities. Every comment has been read and noted.
The full report on the survey can be downloaded here.
Many thanks to all who participated.
