We're celebrating the 150th anniversary of our beautiful building with a fundraising programme to help set DBH up for the next 150 years!

Project by Dunoon Burgh Hall Trust

Once set for demolition, Dunoon Burgh Hall is an inspiring story of a small Scottish community coming together to preserve its rich cultural heritage. The building was rescued by the community, who worked with the John McAslan Family Trust to purchase it for a token £1.

Following a major refurbishment in 2017, this grade b listed building is now a fully accessible venue for exhibitions, performances, gatherings, community meetings and events, providing the community with an accessible space in which to gather and celebrate.

Today Dunoon Burgh Hall is an inclusive organisation which works hard to improve mental well being by providing access to the arts through a year-long programme of free exhibitions, theatre and events.

Alongside this we offer learning programmes for children and young people; artist talks for the community; and dance and drama opportunities from Professional theatre companies.  We also deliver workshops in design, film, visual arts and literature.

Like any old building, it takes a lot to maintain our Hall and keep it running, and there are a number of projects we'd like to undertake to keep the Hall functioning for another 150 years! These include installing secondary glazing, further developing our outdoor garden and performance space and continuing our programme of reducing our carbon footprint and being as green as possible across our entire operation.
