Hall Hire

Set in the heart of South Shields, Freemasons’ Hall offers an inexpensive alternative to the hire of a hotel.  Bookings can be made for wedding receptions, engagement parties, conferences, presentations, art exhibitions, tea-dances, and many other events. Weekends and daytime bookings are normally available, although the Hall is booked most evenings during the week (check out our planner by clicking the link below).
With its bar, dining area and kitchen, we try to ensure that your function takes place smoothly and with every convenience. 
The choice of caterer is left to you, although we can provide a list if required, as well as offer our own in-house catering service.
Our bar staff will be on hand if required to ensure your guests are served efficiently and at sensible prices. Up to a maximum of 120 guests can be accommodated. 
Please note that children are not allowed to enter the Bar area during hiring of the hall. There are car parking facilities nearby for 20 cars, plus on-street parking in adjacent streets.  See full directions here
