Former Urquhart Hall
Former Urquhart Hall
Former parish hall for All Saints Church, built around 1905 to replace a previous non-conformist chapel on the site, dating from 1829 (with "seats for 450" according to the 1887 1:500 plan), which had been demolished in 1902. It served as a community centre, and one of its uses was as a temporary theatre for the Loft theatre company after the Colonnade Theatre was destroyed by fire in 1963. In 1981 the hall was bought by the local Sikh community for social and cultural activities, before being sold by them following their move to a new site on the Queensway Trading Estate.

It was named after the donor, Sarah Urquhart. For photo of the foundation stone on the left wall, see SP3265 : Foundation Stone, former Urquhart Hall.
