Leeds conference and events venue Savile’s Hall, owned by Royal Armouries International is to rebrand to become New Dock Hall.

The venue, which aligned itself closely with the late Jimmy Savile until recent weeks as allegations over sexual abuse of young children began to emerge around the TV presenter, will be named to fall into line with the naming of its surrounding area New Dock, which was bought by Allied London in July.

Managing Director James Vincent said: “We are pleased to have the opportunity to rename the venue and to associate it with New Dock, the new identity being created for the area.”

The hall previously housed memorabilia and pictures of Savile, who attended events and photoshoots there while visiting the Leeds area.

The news comes as two charities set up in Savile’s name have also announced their decision to close as a result of the scandal.
