About the venue


The Edwardian Baroque style of Oddfellows Hall certainly stands out. Elaborate, highly decorative features are to be found throughout Oddfellows Hall. They include an Art Nouveau tile scheme and an original terrazzo floor, complete with marble mosaic inlay depicting the Oddfellows Society crest. An interesting detail on the crest is the 'three links' symbol at the top, which represents the society's motto: friendship, love and truth. When the society was first formed, symbols such as these would have been very useful for communicating to its workers many of whom could not read.

The building came into the hands of the University in the 1960s, when it was in the process of buying properties in the area. The building is now undergoing extensive refurbishment to bring you 21st century meeting space with the grandeur of a grade II listed building.
