Let’s “get behind” Cornbow Hall

Posted on:

Dudley Council’s regen boss urges people to “get behind” Cornbow Hall and support upcoming shows after vowing to keep it open.

Earlier this year, in response to public feedback, the council made the decision to explore all options to keep the hall running as a community venue.

Councillor Simon Phipps, cabinet member for regeneration and enterprise, said:

We have made a clear commitment to keep Cornbow Hall open but we now need local people, many of whom were so passionate about the hall’s future, to get behind it and support upcoming events and consider hiring the hall for private functions or as a venue for a community event.
We’ll also be looking to pursue new acts and shows at the hall to broaden what’s on offer and look at how we can make it more viable in the future.

The hall has a number of events lined up in coming weeks as well as rooms available to hire.

On Saturday April 2, it will welcome the return of the popular Alternative Wrestling World as part of an eight-show stint at the hall, with the most recent show in March being a sell-out.

Halesowen Orchestra will host a celebration of music on March 26 and on May 31 there will be a Clubbercise take over, a fitness party hosted by Stuie Q.

Further details for these events are listed on the borough halls website -

There are two rooms available at Cornbow Hall for hire. The main hall has a capacity for 384 people in theatre style seating and 200 for cabaret style seating. It’s a great space for private functions such as dance shows and large parties.

There’s also the green room available, which can accommodate 60 people and is ideal for small group events such as meetings, conferences and parties.
