All Hallows Hall, winter view of the gothic front in snow

View out of the ornimental front window

All Hallows Hall was built between 1886 and 1901. The architects are Oatley and Lawrence along with Francisco de Sousa Rio. They also built the famous Wills memorial tower of Bristol University at the top of Park street. The hall is open plan, and was designed in a perpendicular gothic revival style. It is of historical importance as one of the first halls in the UK to be installed with under floor heating. It is one of a number of halls and chapels in Bristol from this period but is noted as being more finely detailed and decorated than most. All Hallows Hall is a Grade 2 listed building at risk.

The stage being rebuilt

The stage being rebuilt, In June 2012 All Hallows Church Hall had been empty for around seven years. It was derelict and fire damaged. The building was occupied by community activists with a mission to save the hall from redevelopment and or further dilapidation… The space was made clean and safe and within a few months it opened to the public.

Early days at the hall

All Hallows Community Co-op Ltd was formed in 2012 to undertake repairs and make the space useful. The purpose of the cooperative was to run All Hallows Hall for the benefit of the community. A large number of volunteers rescued the building and contributed their time, effort, money, equipment, tools and love to the project.

Our aim is to build a campaign to be able to buy the hall and secure it for Easton community use.

We feel it is an important space and we are asking Easton if it wants its village hall.

We have been finding a myriad of different usages for the hall over the past 9 years.

Theatre, live music, art shows, projector jams, experimental choirs, a carpet forest, wedding parties, rehearsal space, workshops, community meetings and feasts, regular weekly classes and sports.

We feel if the building was restored to a more acceptable standard it could become even more useful and be used by many more people and be a real asset to Easton and Bristol.
