Loyal Hope is a gorgeous 1920’s heritage listed hall only meters from the trendy hospitality and retail precinct of James Street.

Think of a picture-perfect white timber country hall, located right in the centre of Fortitude Valley. The original heavy polished timber floorboards have been lovingly restored. Huge timber sash windows flood the hall in natural light. Bordering a park, Loyal Hope features views to a heritage listed Moreton Bay Fig and the stone façade of St Patricks Church (circa 1882). A landscaped courtyard has completed this transformation by the team behind Lightspace and Prospect Studios.

The Loyal Hope of the Valley Lodge was constructed in 1923 for the Queensland branch of the Manchester Unity Independent Order of Oddfellows Friendly Society.

This was a philanthropic organisation run by members to assist with healthcare and funeral expenses during a time when there was little or no government arrangements to fall back on. The Valley lodge was used a meeting place for the Oddfellows and later hired out for events of all kinds. The hall has now been lovingly restored to its former glory and is once again available to use by the wider community.
