The May Editorial

Kings Hall - 100 years old By Roger Turner

This year marks the centenary of the opening of the King’s Hall on Herne Bay’s East Cliff. With much pomp and pageantry the ceremony was carried out on July 10th 1913 by HRH Princess Beatrice, sister of Edward VII, on behalf of Queen Alexandra. The building, originally known as the King Edward VII Memorial Hall, was named in his honour following his death in 1910. Arriving at the railway station, where a horse drawn carriage was waiting, Princess Beatrice was invited to a banquet with local dignitaries at the Pier Pavilion and also visited the town’s Cottage Hospital.

ToTown advertise in Town & responding Around Please mention & Around when to adverts Tel: 01227 368615 or Email: advertising@townandaround.co.uk


The site of the King’s Hall was given to the town in 1903 by wealthy local benefactor Thomas Dence, who lived opposite on Beacon Hill. First a platform was laid and a bandstand built on top. Vast crowds, many sitting on the grass slopes, were attracted to the area to listen to military bands and orchestras. A shelter was also constructed beneath the bandstand. The bandstand, once a familiar feature of The Downs, was demolished in 1969. Ten years elapsed before further development took place on the site, when plans were drawn up to convert the shelter into a concert hall. Work, which involved excavating into the cliff, began early in 1913 and by the summer the King’s Hall had taken shape and was ready for use. A concert party had already been formed and entertainment for children was held each afternoon.

The hall, ever since, has been the venue for a variety of functions. These have included amateur drama productions, pantomimes and musicals, dancing displays, dinners/dances, conferences, wrestling tournaments and craft fairs. www.townandaround.co.uk Please mention Town & Around when responding to adverts
