About the Hall
Cove Burgh Hall is the ‘village hall’ for the communities of Cove and Kilcreggan. The Hall acts as a vibrant, focal hub for the two villages and also the wider Rosneath Peninsula community.
The Hall is the venue of choice for many events such as dances, theatre, concerts, films, not to mention the annual Hogmanay Ball, plus a host of regular weekly or monthly activies run by community groups, catering for a huge range of interest - from Literary Societry lectures through to table tennis. The net effect is that the Hall adds social, cultural and recreational value to the lives of local people, inclusive of all social groups.
These activities benefit not just the local community but the Hall itself. They are its main income stream and thus help to maintain the quality physical infrastructure which we all enjoy.
Cove Burgh Hall (CBH) was built at the end of the 19th century as a place for public meetings and social gatherings for the local community. It was owned by the relevant regional councils until 2000 when it was sold to the communities of Cove and Kilcreggan for a nominal sum. Though the Hall had fallen into disrepair under Council management, there was overwhelming support in the community for keeping the Hall open. A committe was formed to carry forward the management of the Hall, and this eventually became Cove Burgh Hall Ltd (CBH Ltd) which continues to manage and operate the Hall on a voluntary, unpaid basis.
Although social needs have changed since it’s opening in 1893, the original reasons for building CBH remain valid and continue to underpin the endeavours of CBH Ltd. Currently the venue, Cove Library, events, and the hosting of meetings of local organisations and government bodies add significant value to the social and cultural activities of the area.
To keep the Hall in good shape, a programme of building works is actively pursued which represents a major management and financial commitment for CBH Ltd.
