Visit Us

From Saturday 1 June until Saturday 31 August The Piece Hall will be opening at the earlier time of 9am, seven days a week.

We’re hosting 35 shows and events over the next three months, but while things look a bit different in the courtyard all our independent shops are all open as usual.

Our flagship restaurant The Trading Rooms has amended opening hours, please check the website for details.

The Piece Hall will close a little earlier at 4pm on show days so we can make final preparations for the evening gigs. You can see the full list of shows days here.

Health & Safety

We are a venue that welcomes family groups, including those with children. We want to keep everyone safe and look after this unique heritage site. We need your help to do that. As a parent/guardian/adult-in-charge of children, it is your responsibility, when visiting us, to ensure they always stay with you, and that you do not let those you are looking after, roam the courtyard, terraces, shops, and bars, unaccompanied.  This way, everyone can stay safe and have fun.
