The Adnams Mission Hall Bar
Built in 1908 by Herbert Green, the Mission Hall served as a place to propagate ideas of Christianity, in then, the grimiest and toughest part of Norwich. When St Swithin’s Church became Norwich Arts Centre in 1980, the Mission Hall became a different type of meeting place, serving as the venue’s bar.
In 2016, Norwich Arts Centre entered a partnership with Adnams Brewery and the bar now serves a selection of their award-winning products.
Following our Arts Council Grant in 2018 the bar was fully refurbished in the Summer of 2019 and now boasts brand new keg lines and a modernised cooling system ensuring your pint is as cold and fresh as possible.
