Rochdale Town Hall

Block Image

Rochdale Town Hall, a historic Grade I Listed building dating back to 1871, has reopened to the public after a comprehensive restoration funded by a £8.9m grant from The National Lottery Heritage Fund. The project, involving nearly 500 volunteers and lasting four years, revived the iconic structure's historic features and introduced community spaces. The Great Hall's hammerbeam ceiling, Exchange's Minton floor tiles, and various intricate details were meticulously restored. The Welcome Gallery and 'Bright Hall' offer immersive experiences, while enhanced accessibility and modern amenities ensure the building's continued enjoyment. Ongoing efforts include the restoration of the west wing.
