The Hall is located in the centre of Eccles.
ECHO is the acronym for Eccles Community Hall Organisation and we are a group of volunteers working to refurbish, maintain and run part of Eccles Town Hall which has been leased to us by Salford City Council for 25 years. We are a registered Charitable Incorporated Organisation 1152625
OUR AIM is to encourage use of the hall by groups throughout the area and to promote an interest in the arts, culture and the local heritage of Eccles. We hope that providing space and facilities in this magnificent venue will nurture friendships, make us fitter (both physically and mentally), reinforce a sense of pride in our town – and be fun!
THE HALL IS USED BY COMMUNITY GROUPS FOR –
Concerts – Theatrical and Choral Productions – Meetings – Lectures – Art Displays – Dances etc.
We do not have the capacity to take bookings for weddings, christenings or parties.
CANCELLATION OF EVENTS
In view of current events regarding the Coronavirus and advice from Government, the Trustees have taken steps to cancel bookings at Eccles Town Hall until further notice.
This decision has not been taken lightly. However, as I am sure you will all appreciate we do have a duty of care and the decision has been made to take into account the best interests of all our visitors and the community at large, following guidelines set out by the Government.
In addition we are taking the opportunity to carry out some very necessary major building work in the Hall.
We hope to be able to resume our normal activities as soon as possible. In the meantime, we wish you all the best, and hope that all our visitors keep well.

As we can’t hold any exhibitions in our ballroom space, we have started doing a mini-exhibition of old Eccles transport in our external noticeboard. We first exhibited these pictures in the 2019 Festival. Please have a look as you’re passing. The display is changed monthly (last changed 17th September).
We are missing all our concerts, especially those from our local brass ensemble Eccles Borough Band, so here they are with two lovely contributions from their lockdown activities.
We are very pleased that our Chair of Trustees was shortlisted in the recent Heart of Salford Awards, for her inspiring leadership of the Eccles Town Hall volunteer team.
She was presented with a Certificate of Recognition. Many Sincere Congratulations to Lesley Jones-Berry for her wonderful achievement!
