The Hall is currently in use – why does it need all this money spent on it?

The Hall is workable because five years ago Camden gave us money to make it a warm, safe, and water-tight space. But it is still a shadow of its former self. When it was built in 1966 it was described as having great acoustics.

Since then the sound cladding has been damaged.  Poor ventilation means on hot days it’s very uncomfortable to be in. There is no changing room and there has never been proper disabled access or a disabled toilet. Nor is there any servery area. The neighbouring amphitheatre has fallen into disrepair and can’t be used as an external performance space.
