Arguably one of Lanark's most adored buildings, the Memorial Hall opened its doors once again in June 2013 after a long period of redevelopment.

The budget for building’s sympathetic restoration, upgrade and extension of £5.35million was funded by the council with help from a Heritage Lottery Fund award of £199,000 and £127,500 from Historic Scotland. The construction project was carried out by Mansell Construction.

Lanark Memorial Hall is a Grade B listed building constructed in 1926 in memory of the 232 men belonging to Lanark and District who lost their lives in World War One.

Designed and managed by the council, the overall project involved South Lanarkshire Leisure & Culture, who manage the building on behalf of the council, the Royal Burgh of Lanark Museum Trust and local schools who worked in partnership to develop 'The Story of Lanark', an electronic kiosk which enables people to research their local heritage.

It hosts an eclectic mix of shows throughout the year and the Bonnington Auditorium can also accommodate weddings. Up to 120 guests can enjoy the wedding meal and 150 guests can attend the evening reception. It can also accommodate smaller wedding parties, in the Jerviswood Hall, were it can accommodate up to 60 wedding guests - there are no minimum numbers. They can provide a range of wedding menu/bar packages these are available on request on 01555 667 999.

Lanark Memorial Hall also offers a range of classes and courses including drama, dance, music and painting.
