In 2004, after securing grant funding, the Victoria Hall had some well-earned tender loving care and benefited from a major makeover on both floors. On the first floor, the removal of the 1950’s hung ceiling to reveal the original Victorian high vaulted ceiling, with its cast iron supports was a visual delight! New decoration, fittings, lighting and carpets gave the hall a new life, with a purpose built gallery on the ground floor, once again, it became the focus of the community.
Now one of Rutland’s leading multi-functional event venues, this fantastic hall oozes life, fun and warmth and offers the perfect setting for a wide range of events.
The Hall is a perfect location for weddings and parties and is a superb space for a business event or exhibition; it hosts weekly line dancing, ballroom dancing, yoga and fitness classes; is the location for the Oakham Quality Market and The Oakham Vintage Fair and many other regular events including antique and collectables fairs, fair-trade events, community and charity events. Wonderful art exhibitions are routinely held in the ground floor gallery space.
