Around 40 business people attended and were rewarded with the opportunity to make new connections, consolidate exiting connection and learn about this historic South Manchester land mark.
Daniel Williamson (Friends of Streford Hall) gave a passionate and moving delivery about the Hall before leading us on a tour of the building.
Once home to Stretford Civic Theatre, Stretford Public Hall was built for the local community by John Rylands in 1878. Since then it has had over 100 years of community use until its closure in 2012.
In 2015 the Hall was based into the stewardship of The Friends of Stretford Public Hall, and their intention is to turn the hall into a fantastic community venue.
During the open networking session, Simon Edmondson introduced me to Mark Dyable (SME Business Solutions) and Paul Winterbottom (Owner at the Alternative Board). Christian Michaels (Digital Marketing) promised me and introduction to one of his clients following a brief chat.
