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.

We are pleased to confirm that our major roof project has now been completed and having been closed for 15 months, the Guild Hall is set to reopen on June 28th. When the Hall was forced to shut its doors because of the pandemic, the decision was made to push forward with the long-awaited plan to carry out major work on the roof of the building which has been at the centre of the town’s social life for almost a century. All of the old asbestos cement tiles have now been removed and a modern, fully insulated roof has been installed. At the same time all guttering and drainpipes have been replaced. The Guild Hall Committee is grateful to grant funders, individuals, groups and businesses that have made a contribution to their roof fund. There is some way to go to meet the ambitious fundraising target and any additional donations would be most welcome. Thanks should also be given to the Staffordshire Moorlands District Council who allocated funds via their Covid Recovery Fund, which have enabled ongoing running costs to be met. The smaller Oakley Room has remained open to the Cheadle & District Foodbank and since the beginning of May, it has been able to welcome the return of some hirers. The venue has several wedding receptions planned before the end of the year, subject to ongoing restrictions. and a group of parishioners from St Giles RC Church have worked hard to spruce up the interior décor, the paint being kindly donated by Peter & James Wilks from Homepoint DIY in Cheadle. Overall the project has been a challenge, both in terms of raising the required funding and also carrying out significant work during difficult weather conditions. The final result is very pleasing and the Guild Hall, which is treasured by many is now set to carry on as the area’s premier 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.
