Grimsby Central Hall

First opened in 1936, Grimsby Central Hall is the oldest surviving continuous concert venue in North East Lincolnshire and yet, for many, remains an undiscovered gem.

Step through featureless doors in Duncombe Street and, like crossing the threshold of the Tardis, an expanded world unravels before you.

You’ll encounter a 700-seat auditorium that retains original art deco features and offers the finest natural acoustics in the area. Place your ear to the wall and you may just hear the lingering echoes of some legendary performers.

Meanwhile, for those more intimate occasions, we have the 170-seat Roy Kemp Hall.

We offer an amazing diversity of entertainment; swing bands to brass bands, rock groups to classical recitals, jazz, choral and stage musicals. It is not surprising that many consider us the home of real music.

Grimsby Central Hall, however, is more than just a popular concert venue; we are a hub of community life and host a wide variety of weekly clubs and societies, as well as being a venue for training courses and conferences. All shades of life pass through our doors; our numerous rooms and unique facilities enable us to cater for 7 or 700 people and they are available for hire at highly competitive rates.


As an independent non-profit making charitable trust, we are committed to keeping this iconic building alive, both as a centre for the local community and a premiere venue for the performing arts.
