War Memorial Hall

Morecambe War Memorial Hall

Morecambe War Memorial HallMorecambe War Memorial Hall is situated opposite the Parish Church, in Church Street, near to the centre of old Poulton.

Designed by W. Gilbert Scott, of London, and funded by public subscription, it was opened in 1926, by Lord Richard Cavendish, as a memorial to the people of the town who gave their lives in The Great War. 

Since its foundation it has been in the care of a Board of Trustees which is charged with ensuring that it is available for social, cultural and educational use for all members of the community. A management committee looks after the day to day operation and upkeep of the building.

The Main Hall

This is a very versatile space, comprising a large hall with servery, with a sprung dance floor. This is suitable for larger events or functions, or activities requiring more space.

Hire of the Main Hall is £15 per hour. If you need access to the servery, there is an additional single charge of £5

The Upper Room 

is ideal for smaller groups and committees. However, please note it is only accessible by a stairway, and therefore would not be appropriate for use by people with physical disabilities. 

Hire of the Upper Room is £10 per hour.

The Café

On the lower floor there is a kitchen and a café-style area (which can both be booked). This is also good for smaller groups, especially if food is to be served, or if your activity requires seating and tables.

Use of the Main kitchen is an additional £8 per hour.


The kitchen/café and the main hall are both accessible by ramp or without having to use steps. There are toilet facilities for people with disabilities in the café area and in the main hall.
