About the Event

Record your memories of Hornsey Town Hall

What are your best memories of the Town Hall? What stories can you tell about this landmark building in the heart of Crouch End? Record and share them!

We are organising two walk-in workshops for the public to record their memories of Hornsey Town Hall. All ages welcome!

What is your best memory of HTH? Do you remember it being a Council Hall? Did you ever go to a concert of performance (Queen was here!)? Have you worked here? Ever gone crazy at a silent disco, or supported your favourite rugby team? We’d love to hear your stories!

Simply pop in on one of the workshop dates. You can find us in the Foyer of HTH. We will provide postcards, pens, felt tips, pencils and treats.

The memories will be displayed in HTH during this year’s Crouch End Festival, and collated on a Hornsey Town Hall Memories Facebook page: www.facebook.com/HTHMemories.

A selection of memories and stories will be shared in a Tribute Ceremony on Sunday 17th June where we will mark the passing from the HTH from one stage in its life to another.

If you’d like to help run the workshops, please contact Rosalie on rosalie@ritualstoday.co.uk

 

Background:

Hornsey Town Hall, an iconic building in the heart of Crouch End, will be moving on to a new phase in its life. Since 1935, it has played a big part in the community: as Town Hall for Hornsey Borough Council until 1966, and as an Arts Centre since 2015. June 2018, the building will be handed over to developer FEC who will complete a refurbishment and realise a new Arts Centre and hotel in the building.

This year’s Crouch End Festival will be the last opportunity for the public to experience the building in its current state. These workshops are part of a series of events running during the Festival to pay tribute to this landmark building that has touched the lives of many North Londoners.
