​Ranfurly Town Hall

As is fitting for any town that was once also a borough, Ranfurly has its own town hall. Built in the 1930s, replacing the original town hall that was burned down, the present town hall was built in the modernist art deco style dominant of the day. The facility features a main hall with stage (set up with 200 removable seats), foyer, kitchen, supper room, ticketing office, bar, toilets and a projector room. The town hall was extensively refurbished in 1998.

Lighting and sound systems can be hired by arrangement with the Ranfurly Drama Club.
