Owned by the Bransford Trust, the multi-million pound redevelopment of Worcester’s historic Royal Porcelain Works first opened to the public in June 2018 with phase one, featuring The ‘Henry Sandon’ Hall. The Hall, the original Worcester Royal Porcelain showroom, is at the heart of the development, refurbished to become a 140-seat capacity multi-use arts and entertainment venue, equipped with the latest audio-visual technology. This is where we will hold our events.
Adjoining the Hall is The Foyer, a perfect space to relax and chat, with its fully-licensed bar. There is a large courtyard outside with seating, ideal for socialising in the fresh air on a warm summer evening.
RPW is about 15 minutes walk from Foregate Street Station and Crowngate Bus Station.
From Foregate Street Station: After walking out of the station turn left into Foregate Street and continue until you reach the High Street (Debenhams and Boots).
From the High Street: Walk towards the Cathedral. After the Elgar statue, cross the street with the roundabout on your left-hand side. Walk along College Street until you pass the Cathedral. Turn right onto College Precincts. At the end of College Precincts, you’ll arrive at Severn Street. You’ll see the Museum of Royal Worcester in front of you. Royal Porcelain Works is to the right-hand side of the museum along Severn Street.
Coming by car
There is lots of parking and disabled parking nearby, either on Severn Street or in Kings Street (Sidbury) Car Park. Evening charges will apply.
Government Covid Guidelines – Step 3
The Monday Night Club is a community support group and has an exemption to meet in groups of up to 30 people, not including staff. Step 3 allows indoor entertainment venues, such as cinemas, and adult exercise classes to take place. (There has always been an exemption for disabled sport.) During May and June we will be enjoying keep fit and yoga sessions, film nights and continuing with our Drumlove music therapy sessions.
We keep you safe by having a limited number of people, sanitising hands, and wearing masks. We will keep 2 metres apart from each other (unless we are from the same household or bubble). The Henry Sandon Hall is a large, high-ceilinged, airy, well-ventilated room and the Courtyard has plenty of seating and is ideal for socialising in the fresh air.
We hope that all our members will soon be vaccinated against Covid-19 and we are looking forward to Step 4 when we will be able to start singing and dancing again!
