The Future

Recently a programme of works at Lopping Hall by the Directors has resulted in significant improvements to the facilities and structure of the Hall.  Some of the work which has already been completed includes: lift access to the first floor, new lavatory provisions, including provision for the disabled, a new roof, improvements to the heating in the Hall, the provision of the Loughton Arts Centre.   Much of the necessary work so far has been to the infrastructure of the Hall, plumbing, heating etc, but as this is completed the Directors plan to turn their attention to the public spaces.  The Trustees are aware that there remains much to be done and they have produced a document detailing key objectives for the next five years.  This document remains work in progress and the Directors welcome suggestions for improvements. You can email us at  

Amongst the objectives are: 

  • Determine the fitness of the existing building services and recommend appropriate action.
  • Bring all rooms up to a good state of decoration.
  • Provide modern kitchen and bar facilities.
  • Enhance access security to the building at all points.
  • Remodel the theatre complex fit for the 21st century.
  • Provide a new main entrance to reconnect Lopping Hall with Loughton High Road.
  • Develop an effective marketing strategy for the Hall and all its uses.
  • Prepare a business or financial plan for the next five years to help us to qualify for major funding applications.
  • Reform use of the storage facilities throughout the building.
  • Realise the potential of the Arts Centre.
  • Restore and refurbish the Station Road entrance and associated rooms.
  • Safeguard our heritage memorabilia – and provide a display.

2017 is a new “Year of the Chair” at Lopping Hall.  The current chairs have served us well for over 30 years, but deserve to be retired.    

The Directors of Lopping Hall have chosen a chair and need to raise funds in the region of £11,000 to purchase 200 chairs at £55 each.

We are asking users and supporters of the Hall to help out by buying a leg, seat, back or perhaps a whole chair or multiple of chairs.  A Just Giving Page will be set up but, if you wish to donate in the meantime, you can download our Chair Flyer and  send a cheque to:  Lopping Hall, FAO Stephen Radley, 187-191 High Road, Loughton, IG10 4LF, made payable to “The Lopping Endowment.
