Project: Todmorden Town Hall

The Town Hall project is to re-invent 1875 built Grade I listed building to create an open and welcoming Heritage Centre and community hub that is financially sustainable.

Town Deal funding will build on partnership investment already spent on works to improve both the exterior and interior of the Hall. This will include:

  • Refurbishment and adaptations including reopening of the main entrance
  • Works to the main access to improve accessibility
  • Remodelling of internal spaces to enable a range of uses (including information centre, event space and workspace) /activities simultaneously
  • The Main Hall will be fully refurbished and become an attractive useable venue for hire

The Town Hall will become an attractive and fully accessible building available for events, functions and workspace. The investment will realise the potential of this much-loved building to be valued and used fully by the community.
