A Little History

59041335_floralhallflowerbeds-300x168

The Floral Hall was built in 1911 by local family firm J K Barr & Sons and opened to the public on 7 July 1913. The Floral has hosted many live events such as shows and Tea/Dinner Dances. It has always been a very respectable place to be seen.

Over the years the Floral has been expanded on numerous times, with the additions of a café and a stage. It has become popular for theatrical shows, Sunday lunches and a night life in Hornsea.

In 2012 Hornsea’s Floral Hall was under threat of demolition by its owners, the East Riding of Yorkshire Council.  March 11th saw a massive demonstration protesting against that move. After some time and lots of coffee later, the Floral Hall Steering committee was formed. This led to the take-over of the Café, then the hall in summer 2013.

The Floral Hall is now run by a committee of volunteer directors, on behalf of the people of Hornsea. They are working hard to bring the reputation of Floral to the 21st century and to be as respectable as it once was. That’s a lot of work to do. 2014 saw the removal of the dreaded infamous sticky carpet and the dull theatre curtains. It’s amazing what a few little changes can make to the appearance of the venue.

If you want to help out we are always looking for volunteers with any type of skills to bring this 100 year old building to scratch. You can volunteer on the call us page.

Based on the true story of Louisa Gould, the drama is set during World War II on the Nazi-occupied island of Jersey. Lou took in an escaped Russian POW and hid him over the war's course. The tension mounts as it becomes clear that Churchill will not risk an assault to recapture the British soil, and the island community spirit begins to fray under pressures of hunger, occupation and divided loyalty. Against this backdrop, Lou fights to preserve her family's sense of humanity and to protect the Russian boy as if he was her own.
