Entertainment and Events

We plan to have more entertainment in the main lounge of The Cosmopolitan Hotel on Saturday nights. Please do keep checking back for more details. In the meantime, here's a taste of what's happening now and within the near future.


There is always something going on in and around The Cosmopolitan. Like, for example, the annual Hartlepool Carnival which is held during early August. It has, of course, finished for this year but it did give a lot of people enjoyment over the week or so it was here - and many people were out with their cameras during the day and at night. This is followed by the annual Raft Race which takes place during early September on the Fish Sands and a great time was enjoyed by all. This winners this year were the 1st Hartlepool Boys Brigade.

Ghost Hunt

Come and experience a ghost-hunt at The Cosmopolitan Hotel.

The Cosmopolitan Hotel dates back to before the First World War and set in a conservation area in old Hartlepool known these days as The Headland. Paranormal activity started when alterations were made to the cellars in the 1970’s. Renovations were left half finished because workers found the atmosphere too spooky and refused to carry on digging.


Back in 2010 the public house made was named named in the Famous Grouse Famous 100 - a list put together by the Daily Telegraph newspaper. The Cosmopolitan was the only Teesside drinking spot to be named in the list and was one of just eleven across the North-East and Yorkshire.


An article in Hartlepool Mail on December 14th, 2010, mentions Jane Fleming, who owns the public house with her husband Tim. She said she was unaware they'd been named on the list until one of the regulars mentioned they had seen it. Contact Jane or Tim for a ghost hunting experience on 01429 274347.
