The Exhibition Hall

The Hall was officially opened on Friday 25th July 2003 during the first day of the annual Border Union Show by HRH The Princess Royal. The Hall was designed by Roger G. Dodd and Company, with the main contractor being John Laidlaw & Son Ltd, Jedburgh. The Development Project was funded by the Society with considerable financial assistance from Scottish Enterprise Borders, Scottish Borders Council and South of Scotland European Partnership Objective 2 Programme. A number of Society members and members of the local community also donated generously to the Development Appeal.

The Hall measures 42 metres by 24 metres (but can be tailored to suit) and is available for business or private functions ; conferences, seminars, trade events, exhibitions, fairs, dances, dinners or weddings. There is a kitchen (12m x 11m), toilets and a separate meeting room in the building with full disabled access and facilities. The Back Hall can be `attached' to the Hall or used on its own. Unlimited parking is available.
