Hardy Productions UK are proud to have sponsored the making of a short fund-raising film, about the campaign to buy, featuring Carolyn Kagan and Peter Topping as Friends of Hough End Hall, and Andrew Simpson, local historian.

There is not much left of the original inside of the building, sadly, but we filmed Andrew on the first floor, against some of the windows that are in a better condition.
Why is all this happening?
The building is vacant and is up for sale for £300,000, well below its value at the peak of the property boom. It would make an ideal location for the South Manchester Community, close to two metro tram stations and on one or more bus routes. It is spacious and could house all sorts of community activities as well as providing somewhere to eat, if required.
More information on the campaign can be found at houghendhall.org and our film can be seen at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Uv-9NwvKO-A on YouTube.
