The Festival Hall is a versatile, multi-purpose venue, suitable for all kinds of events. Perfect for all music, drama and dance performances, it’s also an ideal choice for exhibitions, fairs, business meetings, corporate functions, dinner-dances and galas.
The Festival Hall is located in the heart of Petersfield, next door to the Town Hall and with ample pay-and-display car-parking nearby. Easily accessible by road and rail from London, Hampshire and the South of England, it offers flexible space and superb facilities – the perfect setting, whatever the occasion.
The Festival Hall takes its name from the annual Petersfield Musical Festival, which runs for eight days in March, and is one of the finest events of its kind in the South of England. The first Festival was held in 1901 in the town’s Drill Hall, but soon found itself in need of larger premises, and raised the money to build the Festival Hall in 1936. Today, the Hall is owned and managed by Petersfield Town Council.
The Petersfield Festival Hall is a multi-purpose venue with a choice of rooms available for hire. Whatever the occasion, we have a space to suit your purposes and numbers.
The Festival Hall seats 384: this includes tiered seating for 190, providing excellent views and acoustics for plays, concerts and recitals. All seating can be removed to create a single large space for exhibitions, fairs and other events.
The adjoining Rose Room can be used as an interval bar for events in the main Hall, or hired in its own right. The Rose Room seats 100 people theatre style, making it suitable for larger meetings, such as AGMs, presentations and lectures, as well as smaller fairs, displays and private dining.
The Council Chamber and Green Room are ideal for board meetings and other more intimate gatherings.
