The work we do at Victoria Hall makes a bigger difference to our community than many people realise. Our wide range of community and social events helps to combat social isolation, which is a serious problem in rural areas with a high elderly population, such as Craven, and can dramatically increase the risk of both mental and physical health problems. Victoria Hall’s doors are always open, as they have been for the last 165 years, we always have something going on, and, as a visitor recently said to us, “everyone who comes through these doors seems to have a smile on their face”.
We receive no regular grant funding, no support from local government, and are entirely independent. Donations from the public are vital to the running of Victoria Hall, and to its survival.
With your help, we can keep our doors open to the people of Settle and far beyond, and continue to bring national and international artists and shows right to the doorstep of a small, isolated rural community, as well as attracting visitors from all over the world to our beautiful venue and the stunning South-West Dales.
There are lots of ways to help Victoria Hall. You can donate through CAFonline, BTmydonate, or by setting up a standing order with this form. You may also like to consider Victoria Hall in your will. You can be sure that your money is going towards the running and upkeep of the world’s oldest Music Hall, and making sure that it stays open for years to come.

Buy us a beer...
Our annual beer festival attracts many hundreds of people from far and wide every July. Your company can sponsor a barrel or half-barrel, and get your name on the barrel, as well as on our sponsors’ board for the entire weekend. This year’s festival runs from 6-8 July 2018, and barrels are already going quickly. Enquire about beer festival sponsorship here.
