Appreciate this wonderful building in the heart of the town and the hearts of the people of Middlesbrough. The new Town Hall, opened in 1889, is undergoing a major makeover to improve access, address maintenance issues and open up hidden spaces to the public, including the Courtroom, Police Cells and Old Fire Station led by Liz Hayward, Engagement & Learning Officer and Kier.

Talk - free and open to all:

Halfway through the refurbishment this event offers you the opportunity to understand the ambitions of this Heritage Lottery Fund supported project. You may be able to go and see the changes taking place on site and how the building is being transformed into an amazing heritage venue ready to host new wider programmes in spring 2018.
