Porchester Hall and Mr Creosote

Ths location of the Mr Creosote sketch from The Meaning of Life.

Location: 45 Porchester Road, Bayswater, London, W2 5HS

Description: The Porchester Hall was opened in 1929 alongside the Turkish Baths and Library on Porchester Road. It provided the Borough of Paddington with a dignified Public Hall intended primarily for use by the residents in the area, its beauty and convenience proving to appeal to a wider circle.

The Hall was available for concerts, whist drives, banquets, dances, receptions and meetings. The foundation stone was laid by the Mayor Leonard Snell, JP, and this can be found at the Halls main entrance.

Recent events include BBC1 Session with Amy Winehouse & Yusuf Islam, leading international rockers Arcade fire, EMI record label showcase with Corrine Bailey Rae, The Magic Numbers & Badly Drawn Boy, venue of BBC1s Question time and a host of London fashion week.

It is however more infamous for being the location where Monty Python's most memorable sketch in 1983's The Meaning of Life was filmed. It was here that Mr Creosote made an impression after that fatal last waffer-thin mint!
