Sorry this project was unsuccessful, we did not reach our fundraising goal.

Acoustic sound proof ceiling.
Hoxton Hall has a long history of making sounds, we opened as a music hall in 1863 presenting the local community with music hall variety shows, we continued throughout the 1900's and until this very day we continue to make music and sounds for all to enjoy.
Our current music programme is twofold:
i. We are lucky enough to run year round music courses for young people aged 7 - 19 from our local community, offering; Music lessons, Band practice, music production courses and rehearsal space for FREE to young people.

ii. We run a year round varied programme of high profile music and Theatre events in our 120 capacity grade II* listed music hall theatre venue.

The sound clash between these two spaces results in disturbances for audiences and young people making it impossible to use two spaces at once; Making it very difficult to work with young people and run community outreach programmes whilst the main Theatre is in use and vice versa.

What we'll deliver:

  • Install an acoustic sound proofed ceiling.

Why it's a great idea:

Because with your help, we can reach more young people through music, and extend the reach of our programme to more young people. We want to run a full timetable of music engagement workshops for FREE for the young people of Hackney as well as continuing with our eclectic mix of live theatre and music shows.

Our music room means that more young people can experience music learning live music as well as music productions skills.

We currently reach between 150- 200 young people annually, the acoustic ceiling would mean we would be able to increase this to 300 young people.
With your help, up to 40,000 potential audiences can enjoy theatre shows, gigs, comedy and much more!

With your help we can modernise our 150 year old inspiring Grade II* listed Music Hall in the heart of the East London community, so that we can reach more audiences and more young people for another 150 years.

Steps to get it done:

  • we will raise the fund to purchase acoustic cladding materials for the fully equipped music room on space hive!
  • We will contract a building company to install Acoustic Sound proofing materials .

We are a registered charity and have been raising funds for a number of years, we are currently undergoing major refurbishment works which will mean that many of the workshop spaces are updated along with the Music Hall theatre.

The refurbishments to the Music Hall theatre will mean an increased capacity of 120 to 240, the repercussions of this and the positive effect of this on our work with the local community and the young people will be noticeable to say the least.
For more information on our hall, the forthcoming building works and our extensive youth work programme please see:

We have a proven track record of making a real impact in the lives of our local community, we see change in the people we work with, we see opportunities open up for individuals and aspirations grow and grow.
