Here there is no decoration, but the old pictures and the Hoare Memorial window-panel from the old Hall. The acoustic material on the front of the gallery here and in the Convocation Hall is intended to be covered with handworked tapestry.
The domed ceiling of the Lobby connecting the Hoare Memorial Hall and the passage to the Assembly Hall has this ring inscription:
WHERE SHALL WISDOM BE FOUND? BEHOLD
THE FEAR OF THE LORD, THAT IS WISDOM AND
TO DEPART FROM EVIL IS UNDERSTANDING.
