The Stanley Hall

Stanley Arts
Croydon, London

The stunning Art Nouveau Stanley Hall can seat up to 180 guests at tables or 210 audience members in rows. Alternatively the hall can hold up to 300 people standing. At the back of the hall is an upper balcony which has a further 100 cinema-style seats giving a total max capacity of 400. There is a fully licensed bar available for public events in the Gallery, right next to the Stanley hall.

The stage layout can be changed to suit the needs of each event with the steel decks at the front of the stage removable to expose a small orchestra pit underneath.

With extensive recent investment in modern lighting and sound infrastructure, Stanley Hall is a great venue for all types of musical, theatrical or dance shows. With a light and well ventilated space it is also a great location for daytime conferences, meetings and large scale rehearsals.

Our friendly team are happy to help with any enquiries. Please drop them a line.

Stanley Arts


Our vision

 

Stanley Arts aims to be one of South London’s premiere arts and performance centre. We offer a platform for the brightest and best of South London’s artistic community; giving local creatives the opportunity to reach out to audiences from across the city and beyond.

We are a radically inclusive space that welcomes all audiences; and one that is particularly welcoming to communities that have previously been excluded from creative spaces. This means that we will seek to foreground the stories and work of both artists of colour and queer and LGBTQ+ communities.

With the inherent challenges of a Grade 2 listed building, we do not currently have full access to all our spaces for all disabled communities but, as we seek funding for capital improvements, expanding access across the site is at the forefront of our future development plans.

We seek to give emerging artists across all art forms, and the creative technologies of the future, the opportunity to grow through innovation, collaboration and participation.


Background

 

Stanley Arts is a Grade II listed Edwardian arts venue at Norwood Junction. A fascinating complex of unique Edwardian buildings built in 1904-11, the Halls comprise an art gallery, theatre hall and assembly rooms. The building was donated and designed for his local community by William Ford Robinson Stanley (1829-1909); a prominent local inventor, industrialist and philanthropist.

Stanley Arts is now run by SPI, a charity established by the local community to re-open, manage, improve and restore Stanley Halls. William Stanley’s vision for the halls was centred around the promotion of: “Justice, Liberty and Science”. SPI aim is to encourage the community to use, improve, preserve and love Stanley Arts now and for future generations.

See the Living Heritage section for more on the history and plans of Stanley Arts at Norwood Junction, in the heart of South Norwood.
