Warden

INTRODUCTION

Run by The Piece Hall Charitable Trust, this grade 1 listed building is the only remaining Georgian cloth hall in the world and welcomes more than 2 million visitors a year.

First opened in 1779 for the trading of ‘pieces’ of hand-woven woollen cloth, this stunning heritage site is now an award-winning, free to enter, contemporary leisure, retail and arts destination with a treasure trove of high-quality independent shops, bars, cafés and restaurants.

Its 66,000sq ft open air courtyard, on a par with the great piazzas of Europe, plays host to a year-round program of world class live music and cultural events alongside food, drink and craft markets and community festivals.

2022’s ‘Live at The Piece Hall’ summer gigs season saw almost 60,000 people watch global superstars including Tom Jones, Paloma Faith, Nile Rodgers and CHIC and Noel Gallagher’s High-Flying Birds take to the stage in this breath-taking location.

The Piece Hall also hosts over 40 independent retailers and hospitality outlets, and runs a number of its own cafes, restaurants and bars. It also has a large function and conference room that can host weddings, meetings, events and private functions.
