Bedern Hall

What is the Bedern Hall Foundation?


Thirty years ago Sir Peter Shepherd on behalf of the Bedern Hall Guilds of York laid the new foundation stone to restore and preserve this important building for the City. In the intervening years the Hall has provided a hall for hire and social occasions venue for the benefit of the people of York and for visitors attending events from around the world.

The Bedern Hall Foundation is being launched to secure Bedern Hall’s next thirty years and beyond with a new vision for the Hall that encompasses; education; preservation and accessibility. The inaugural dinner of the Bedern Hall Foundation is to be held on Thursday 31st October 2013 at the Cedar Court Grand Hotel and Spa York.

Why is it such an important occasion? Firstly, the event is to celebrate the 30th Anniversary of the laying of the restoration foundation stone. Secondly, Lady Cobham, chair of VisitEngland will speak about the importance of our built heritage in Britain and its value to the visitor economy. Thirdly, the Bedern Hall Foundation Inaugural Dinner represents an opportunity to help to secure this important York historic venue for the future.

How will it happen? The Bedern Hall Foundation aims to raise £30,000 annually to enable this vision to be realized and the dinner on 31st October will be the beginning of a new era for the Hall that will secure its future for the next generations.
