Middlesbrough Town Hall is going through a major refurbishment. These special tours offer a unique opportunity for you to see how the work is coming along, and see the changes ‘first-hand’. Led by the Town Hall’s Engagement and Learning Officer Liz Hayward, the tour will include a brief introduction in the Council Chamber, followed by a tour to include the Main Hall, Crypt, Court Room, Cells, Old Fire Station and Carriageway.

Due to the nature of the Town Hall site, these tours are only appropriate for those with good mobility. The tour will include a brief safety briefing from the building contractors Kier, and all necessary safety clothing will be provided.

Places are limited and are available on a first come first served basis from Middlesbrough Theatre Box Office. Tickets are free, and limited to 3 tickets per person.
