Venue Access

The Trades Hall has been undergoing an enormous renovation over the last six years. We recently completed stage two of our works.

Previously, the building reflected its age and was a difficult place for the disability community to attend. Our restoration works have made Trades Hall a much more accessible space for our community, though more improvements are in the works. Contact us if you need more information.

Narrow doorways - some rooms in the oldest section of the building, have narrower doorways that may challenge some users.
