Enjoy the newly restored town hall building and explore new spaces and places, previously closed to the public. Join us on a tour and learn all about the fascinating facts of the town hall’s past.

Younger guests can enjoy family fun trails through the building and interactive displays in our new exhibition space.

There’s lots of rooms available for private hire and a brand new community space, the Bright Hall.

The Martlet Kitchen is also on hand from March 2024, serving up locally inspired dishes for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
