Rent Chandler for Your Event
Thank you for your interest in Chandler’s facilities for your event or activity. We are pleased to make this historic building available to individuals and organizations.
Chandler Center for the Arts presents a year-round schedule of performances and exhibits in the Music Hall and Gallery. At times when the facilities are not needed for Chandler programming, they are available to rent for public or private purposes. Priority will be given to those events that further Chandler’s mission of bringing the visual, literary, or performing arts, and education in the arts, to the Central Vermont community.
About the Facility
The turn-of-the century Music Hall, with near-perfect acoustics, was built in 1907 as a commercial theatre and community gathering space. The adjacent Gallery, with beautiful natural light, was constructed at the same time and served as the activity center for youth and adults in the community. The past thirty years have seen significant restoration of the hall and a reestablishment of its role as a vital community resource for the arts, thanks to a considerable investment of the community’s time, talent and funds. Today the Chandler building is owned by the Town of Randolph but operated and maintained by a small staff and a large group of volunteers incorporated as Chandler Center for the Arts.
