Details

The Princess situated in the sea-side town of Burnham-on-Sea has had a varied history. Built in 1869 by a private company known as the Market House and Town Hall Company at a cost of £2,000 it has housed the Council Chamber, been used as a covered market and even accommodated the town fire station under its first floor auditorium. In 1994, Sedgemoor District Council embarked upon a major refurbishment programme almost completely rebuilding the venue internally, taking out the upper floor to provide an airy ground level auditorium and creating smaller rooms for hire. The Princess was then officially reopened by HRH Princess Alexandra on the 8th June 1995. The Princess Hall, as it was known, was re-named The Princess to herald its renaissance and indicate it was not only a hall, but also a theatre, conference centre and more.
