Salisbury City Hall

City Hall in Salisbury closed as an entertainment venue in March 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic. From December 2020 to January 2023 it was used as a mass vaccination centre to support the efforts to keep as many people protected from COVID-19 as possible.

We are currently looking at all the options available to reopen City Hall as an entertainment venue. 

May 2024 update

We have procured expert real estate company Savills to market City Hall on our behalf on a long lease to prospective organisations. Savills will support in identifying organisations that are best suited to enter a lease in excess of 25 years.

A stipulation for prospective operators is that the venue remains as an entertainment venue. Should appropriate operators be recommended and one appointed after this process they would be responsible for the running of the venue, but we would retain overall ownership.

We'll be in regular contact with them throughout this process and will provide further updates when we can.

As we've stated all throughout this work, we want City Hall to be a thriving entertainment venue that complements the city, and we look forward to working with Savills UK to help identify a provider that shares this vision.
