Shoreditch Town Hall has been a proud supporter of Hackney Carnival over the last three years and hosted the 2017 and 2018 Carnival's Awards Ceremony in the Council Chamber.

In 2017, we gave the Carnival groups free space to make their amazing costumes and practice their performances.

Check out some of the coverage of the Awards Ceremony in our Blog, and keep your eyes peeled for information on how the Town Hall will be supporting the next Hackney Carnival!

Shoreditch Town Hall was delighted to host a very special A Dance Down Memory Lane, a special Tea Dance, in 2018 and 2019 as a part of the Hackney Dementia Festival.

Attendees were invited to join us for a cup of tea and a slice of cake, and relive those tea dance memories. We welcome those of all ages and abilities to our Tea Dances and a Dance Down Memory Lane was no exception, with newcomers as well as our regular attendees coming together to dance in the Assembly Hall.

Hackney Dementia Festival is a yearly event that aims to make Hackney more Dementia aware and friendly. More information about Hackney Council’s initiatives can be found here.

The Town Hall regularly programmes an eclectic mix of workshops and masterclasses for all different ages, ranging from weekly hula hooping classes with Marawa the Amazing through to week-long corporeal mime masterclasses with Theatre Re and weekend sewing workshops with Made My Wardrobe.
