About Newstart Hall

Following a £1.6million fundraising campaign, our 1950’s Newstart Hall has been transformed into a state-of-the-art theatre and sports hall with its very own coffee shop.

With a focus on disability sports and art, Newstart will offer an exciting calendar of performances, events, fixtures and education programmes for our learners, local groups and wider communities. The hall can also be hired for community groups, conferences and parties.

The contemporary coffee shop provides the perfect space for you to relax, meet friends and see just how Portland helps transform the futures of people with disabilities. 

Booking Newstart Hall

Our brand-new sports hall and theatre is open for bookings during the evenings and weekends for sports and performance groups, competitions, theatre or musical productions, dance or exercise groups, conferences and much more.

For more information, contact our Newstart Programme Coordinators on 01623 499111 or email newstart@portland.ac.uk.
