A Bit About Us

Stanley Civic Hall is a purpose built theatre and multi -use hall situated in the heart of Stanley, check County Durham.

The theatre was built in 1961 by the Stanley Urban District Council and was threatened with closure in 2013 until Stanley Town Council stepped in to take over the management of the building and preserve what is one of only two active theatres in the north Durham area.
