The Guild Hall, Cheadle Tape Street Cheadle ST10 1BG 07518 786149 Email Facebook
The Catholic Guild Hall, Cheadle was originally owned by the miners in Cheadle.
There were several open cast mines in the area and the miners had no social club of their own. For every ton of coal taken from the mine in Leek Road, Cheadle, the miners each contributed a shilling to save for a social club and the hall was built around 1928.
The mines soon got in to difficulties and were forced to close. The local Catholic priest, John Joseph MacDonald (‘Fr Mac’), bought the hall for the town and it has remained the property of the Catholic church ever since (Archdiocese of Birmingham - Regd Charity No 234216). The Church now runs the Guild Hall as a service to the community of Cheadle.
Over the years the hall was host to many of the big dance bands, and people would come from all over the country to dance on its famed sprung floor.

Since the Government announced in March that the country was in lockdown due to COVID 19 the Guild Hall, which is usually buzzing with activity day in day out, has been closed to the public The only group which has been able to use the venue is the Cheadle & District Foodbank, which continues its vital work within our community.
The Management Committee have made the brave decision to use this time of enforced closure to forward with the roof replacement project. The overall project will cost in the region of £100,000 and will take 6/7 weeks. It is hoped that completion can be achieved before Christmas.
Through careful management and 3 small grants from St Giles’ Church, Allchurches Trust Ltd and the Sir Harold Hood’s Charitable Trust, a total of £30000 has been raised so far and a loan of £50000 has been secured. This leaves £20000 to be raised.
We are inviting local businesses and the general public to make a contribution to secure this iconic local venue for generations to come.

Awards for All grant The Oakley Room will be warm and comfortable all winter thanks to a new replacement combi boiler. This was made possible through a National Lottery 'Awards for All' grant. The Room is used by many local groups including: The Foodbank; Slimming Worlds; U3A; Weightwatchers; the Sunshine Club; the Alzheimer's Society and Cheadle Community Band; and for parties and 'family do's'. This project has only been possible because the general public continue to play the National Lottery. We are very grateful for this support.
