Marsden Mechanics is the hub of the beautiful West Yorkshire village of Marsden, we play host to gigs, events, fairs, festivals, meetings – everything a vibrant community needs.

We are run by the community for the community. We have spaces available to hire for events, activities, weddings, live music, parties and meetings.

Volunteers and staff from Marsden Community Trust, who manage the building on behalf of the community, have been working tirelessly throughout the covid 19 pandemic to refurbish and transform the building, thanks to a grant from the National Lottery Coronavirus Community Support Fund. Here’s a video showcasing our refurbished spaces and facilities.

We are looking to get our regular groups back into the building from May 17th, as government guidance allows.

Marsden Community Trust is also planning a range of exciting new events and activities for the benefit of the community as soon as it is safe to do so. A new website is also coming soon, making it easier for you to find out about what’s on and to get in touch.

Meanwhile, please bear with us as the building is still closed to the general public for the time being.
We are currently taking bookings for weddings, parties and events later in the year. If you’d like to book something in the diary and look around our spaces please email marsdenmechanicshall@hotmail.com

Marsden Library is also located within the building
