Argyll & Bute

Dunoon Burgh Hall

Dunoon Burgh Hall has been at the heart of the community since it was funded and built in 1874 by the town’s people. The most important civic building in Dunoon, and Argyll’s only theatre when it was built, it acted as the Town Hall and provided spaces for meetings, weddings, dances and games. Falling into disrepair, it closed for 25 years until 2009 when it was rescued, reopened and work began to plan its ultimate restoration into a much-needed arts-led venue and destination by the Dunoon Burgh Hall Trust. Following major refurbishment of this grade B listed building, Dunoon Burgh Hall re-opened in June 2017 as a community arts hub. The building plays a pivotal role in the town of Dunoon and its position within Argyll. The Trust works across the whole community in inter generational projects; family focused activities; creative youth work; early years; amateur dramatics and creative groups. Our exhibition programme has included ARTIST ROOMS: Andy Warhol; Barbara Rae CBE RA RSA and Martin Parr. Dunoon Film Festival, established in 2013 is an annual fixture. The Project is supported in every way by an incredible array of volunteers who acts as Tour guides; technicians; fundraisers; invigilators and front of house. As a result the community own the space and it has become a hive of activity, a true cultural hub. Since 2009, 46,000 people have visited the Hall to experience activities and programmes.
