As well as hosting a wide range of regular and one-off activities Clements Hall Trust also actively supports a number of additional projects:
GEM (Greet, Eat, and Meet)
The community lunch project, previously known as "Food & Fun", is funded by the Joseph Rowntree Foundation. We run community lunches every week on a Wednesday.
Local History Group
Clements Hall Local History Group was set up in 2012 to research the history of the community around Clements Hall and to become a local resource for people to explore the area through digitised records of documents, writings and images.
The group meets one evening every two months. All welcome. They are engaged in some really exciting projects – further details can be found at
If anyone would like further details about the group and its projects, please email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
South Bank Community Cinema
The ever-popular South Bank Community Cinema is a grassroots film society set up by film lovers seeking a more relaxed, intimate and social venue than that offered by commercial cinemas. SBCC presents a wide selection of films, including popular, classics, art house and foreign language. Screenings take place with ‘cabaret’ style seating around candlelit tables. There is a fully licensed bar.
Screenings are every two weeks on Fridays in term-time. The door (and the bar) open at 7.30pm; the film starts at 8.00pm. Tickets (£3 members, £4 non-members) can be bought in advance from the hall or Cycle Heaven in Bishopthorpe Road. Or you can buy on the door. Please note some films are very popular and tickets on the door are often limited. Annual membership is only £5.00.

We would love to develop the green space at the back of the hall into a community garden. As well as being a nice garden, we hope people will also learn gardening skills as a result of the project.
If you have any enquiries about these or any possible future activities please just contact us.
