Diss Corn Hall


Located in the historic market town of Diss on the  border of Norfolk and Suffolk, and at the gateway to the Waveney Valley, the Corn Hall is an impressive Grade II listed building which was originally built as a corn exchange.

The Corn Hall is now a thriving arts venue offering a wide range of quality entertainment. The Corn Hall’s popularity with audiences from across the region has resulted in it being shortlisted in the Norfolk Arts Awards People’s Choice Best Venue category for the last three years.

The Corn Hall is run by the Diss Corn Hall Trust which is a charity dedicated to the promotion of the performing arts.

The building has now reopened following an expensive refurbishment.

The Box Office is located on the ground floor of the Corn Hall.
