Beccles Public Hall & Theatre

Located in the Suffolk town of Beccles at the corner of Smallgate and Station Road. The Town Hall was built in 1786 and was altered in 1820. It underwent restoration in 1903 and it was renamed Public Hall. It was being used for public meetings, lectures and was soon leased to Eastern Counties Cinemas by 1909. It was closed in October 1914 when the new purpose-built Cinema opened (It has its own page on Cinema Treasures). The Public Hall went back to being used for special events, meetings etc.

In recent years it has become a performing arts centre and live theatre. There are 175-seats on the main floor and 48-seats in the gallery.

As you can see from the first picture, the Public Hall was originally taller.
