The Corn Hall Stowmarket dates form 1835 when it incorporated an assembly room in as part of the corn and farm-trading centre.
This was used for public meetings, concerts, travelling theatricals, dinners and trade exhibitions. It closed in 1966 and went through a variety of uses before becoming the Movieland Film Centre in 1986. This was short lived and the building became a pool hall until 2002, when it was converted into a storage room for the council.
The original frontage and foyer of the building in the centre of Market Place was converted in to a bank (now Nat West) many years ago and the main entrance is now in Church Walk at the rear of the building.
By 2013, it had been converted into a community arts centre.
