Help Us Shape Our Future In Kidderminster
It would be really super to hear from members of our community as we start to make plans for our Town Hall. From silent discos to film screenings to evening classes – we want to hear all your fantastic ideas!
Kidderminster Town Hall has been the town’s focal point for over 150 years providing a venue for concerts, events and exhibitions. By also providing a base for the Registration Service, many residents of the town have marked important life stages here by either getting married or registering new births. Now that Wyre Forest District Council have moved their Customer Service Centre to Green Street, we want to open up the ground floor of the Town Hall and use it to enhance the lives of our residents.
