ECHO was established in 2010 to promote the renovation and development of the magnificent ballroom and its associated rooms and facilities on the first floor of Eccles Town Hall. ECHO is an independent community group which has negotiated a 25 year lease from Salford City Council. ECHO is a Charitable Incorporated Organisation registered with the Charity Commission (No. 1152625). Meetings are advertised locally and convened in Eccles Town Hall Ballroom.
In 2010, the immediate objective of the organisation was to obtain funds to begin to refurbish the ballroom, balcony, stage and adjacent areas to provide high quality facilities for local community groups. Once accomplished, the organisation will then manage the space to ensure that its purpose and values are maintained and its future safeguarded for the benefit of everybody in the local community.
Our Business Plan includes the following aims:
- Encourage community involvement
- Reflect local needs
- Work with local and regional organisations
- Promote, develop and sustain the hall
- Cherish the old town hall’s place in local history
The ballroom is ideal for concerts, theatrical productions, choral recitals, meetings, exhibitions and dancing.
