The Battery Point Community Hall, located at 52 Hampden Road, on the corner of Hampden Road and Francis Street, is owned and run by the Battery Point Community Association (BPCA). The hall is a beautiful space for weddings, exhibitions, functions and community gatherings. The hall is a licensed place of assembly with a maximum capacity of 100. As well as the hall itself, there is also a small kitchen, a meeting room, toilets (including disabled facilities) and the delightful adjoining Henslowe Park.
If considering hiring the hall for your wedding, we highly recommend working with local Battery Point business, Style My Day. Style My Day has a large catalogue of wedding decor available for hire (as seen in these images) and has extensive experience styling beautiful weddings at the Battery Point Community Hall.
The hall itself has a fascinating history. The oldest part of the building dates back to the early 19th century when it was used as a Congregational Church School House. The building was extended in the 1860s and became a Methodist Mission Hall and Sunday School, until falling into disuse in the 1950s and facing demolition to make way for a service station. Members of the community banded together to raise funds to purchase the hall and neighbouring park for community use – specifically as a place for children to play. Over many years, the hall was used by the Battery Point Community Centre, primarily as a play group and youth centre. In the 1990s the Community Centre merged with the Progress Association to become the Battery Point Community Association (BPCA) as we know it today.
