The Riley Smith Hall is a wonderful art deco theatre and ballroom which is available to hire for a range of events. The hall was commissioned by William Riley Smith of John Smith’s Brewery just after World War I as a memorial hall for those who lost their lives during the war.

The Empire Stone Co provided the “stone” blocks for the main facade of the building  they are actually cast concrete a method of fabrication that became popular during the Art Deco era.
