Bedern Hall is a Medieval Hall located in the centre of York, but so many people don’t know it’s wealth of history and the story behind the building. Having been used as part of the College of the Vicars Choral from the 1390s up until the middle of the 17th century, it is now a place where citizens and tourists of York can come and explore the history, attend an event, or hire it for their own personal or business occasion. The only buildings that remain of the College of the Vicars Choral, who sang services in York Minster, are the Hall, the Chapel and the Gatehouse.
We host a variety of events here at the Hall and are always happy to have a chat to discuss potential collaborations for future endeavours.
