Given the relaxation of Covid restrictions, we're gradually re-opening here at Howden Shire Hall starting with some of our hosted groups and classes from 17th May.  See the classes section of our website for more information. 

The Shire Hall is a multi-functional building used for community hires such as parties, wedding receptions and fund-raising events. It is also used as an arts centre with live music, theatre, comedy and cinema.

The Snow Queen

Our special production this year is an adaptation of the classic tale of The Snow Queen by Hans Christian Andersen. Our story is an original piece devised for family audiences with a running time of under 1 hour! Perfect for younger children with an option to book community groups/school parties as bubbles (please get in touch to find out more).


Cast in Stone are a Howden based theatre company of 6 local performers and this special Christmas production is a fundraiser for Howden Shire Hall – all profits being donated back into our community for future productions and events in our 170 seat theatre space.


Fans of Howden Pantomime Group can look forward to their annual production in January 2022 and we are very grateful to them for making way for us to present this special Christmas production for 2021!


Huge thanks go to ERYC Active Towns for their generous grant of £200 to cover costs of set build and costumes.
