A beautiful, traditional
The Battery Point Community Hall is a beautiful space for weddings, exhibitions, functions and community gatherings. During the day it has a very soft light and in the evenings the old wooden floor and charming windows create a romantic atmosphere.
As well as the hall itself, there is also a meeting room and the delightful adjoining Henslowe Park.
The oldest part of the building dates back to the early 19th century when it was used as a Congregational Church School House. The wonderful timber floor dates to that period. In the 1860s, the building was extended and became the Methodist Mission Hall and Sunday School. After being saved from demolition in the 1950s by the local community, the building and adjacent park became a community centre and hall.
We would like to thank Style My Day, a local Battery Point wedding planning and hire business, for the wedding photos.
