Selby Town Hall is a uniquely intimate performing arts centre based in a 150-year-old former Primitive Methodist chapel. Run by Selby Town Council, it sits at the west end of Selby's main street Gowthorpe and, with an ever increasing and fiercely loyal fan base, acts as a cultural hub in this historic North Yorkshire market town.

Selby Town Hall opened as an arts centre in 2003 and has developed a strong reputation for its exceptionally warm and welcoming atmosphere. The Town Hall presents an incredibly diverse programme of professional performances from bluegrass to stand up comedy, boogie woogie to contemporary dance and world music to classic theatre, over two seasons of events each year. The Town Hall also co-ordinates a number of workshops for local schools and has previously hosted monthly band nights for under 20s and Sunday afternoon classical recitals.

With a maximum seated capacity of 150, the Town Hall regularly hosts headline acts, including: Alan Carr, Midge Ure, Jon Richardson, Eliza Carthy, Lloyd Cole, Two Door Cinema Club, T’Pau, Jack Dee and Ralph McTell.

While the acts are always of an international quality, the Town Hall still retains the intimate feel of a venue lovingly run by a small team of staff and volunteers who want to see great performances taking place right here in our little Yorkshire market town.
