Victoria Hall appeal

Court case to decide the future of the Victoria Hall is starting on Monday 20th February 2023



After nearly two years of delay, the court hearing will take place on 20th and 21st February.


In that time the nature of the proceedings has changed.

It started as a simple appeal by Will French and Tony Miller on behalf of the Friends of the Victoria Hall. Next week they will be in court  to take on Ealing Council and the Charity Commission – both awash with our money to pay for legal advice and barristers.

Both bodies have turned what should have been a simple, layman-friendly process into a big-budget battle of the barristers. They have produced hundreds of pages of references to other legal cases in a cynical attempt to obscure the simple factual matters under review.

We decided that having come this far we could not risk being defeated by these dubious tactics so we are again working with our original expert legal advisors and instructing counsel.

The Victoria Hall and the Prince’s Hall below it are the only large, affordable indoor venue in Ealing that’s easy for everyone to get to, whether they live in Acton, Greenford, Hanwell, Northolt, Perivale or Southall.

We can’t let that go for the want of some extra legal support.
