About our hall

We purchased the former Howe Church building in Castle Street, Great Torrington in February 1996.

Following extensive renovations it was officially opened during Mayfair in 1998.

The purchase was funded through a grant from The Arts Council for £91,700 with additional monies coming from various local donations and band funds.

In total the entire project to provide Torrington Silver Band with it’s own permanent premises to practice and perform cost in the region of £120,000.

Howe Church is now known as Howe Concert Hall and we use it for rehearsals and concerts.
