At the heart of Kidderminster’s town centre we provide a cultural space for everyone to enjoy.
THE TOWN HALL IS NOW Temporarily CLOSED.
We are undertaking a major transformation project which will make the venue more accessible to the people of Kidderminster and surrounding areas. We are due to reopen in 2025.

On 20th March 1853, a public meeting under the Chairmanship of Lord Ward (later Earl of Dudley) took place in which it was proposed that a public building should be erected for the benefit of all classes in the town and not associated with party politics. The Corn Exchange was officially opened on 4th January 1855. The Music Room itself opened later as it awaited the installation of its splendid Organ which was being assembled by the famous firm of Messrs Hill, Organ Builders to Her Majesty Queen Victoria.
The King Charles I Room, The Court Room and Council Chamber were opened in 1877 and the two council buildings were linked in 1957.
Visitors to the Town Hall have included Winston Churchill on 28th January 1904, General William Booth of the Salvation Army on 18th August 1904, Earnest Shackleton on 2nd March 1910 and Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Phillip on 23rd April 1957.
Performances at the Town Hall include appearances from Cilla Black, Tom Jones, The Kinks, Robert Plant, The Rolling Stones, U2 and UB40. 2022 has seen performances from Martin Kemp, Mark ‘Biily’ Billingham, The Mersey Beatles and our final event prior to closing for transformation works was brought to us by Kidderminster Choral Society.
The redevelopment will make the building a lot more accessible and user friendly for clients and customers and we are looking forward to bringing more music and cultural acts to the people of our local community.

Our classic central building is steeped in history & culture, providing opportunity for modern events, performance, meeting space or weddings.
Last Christmas ran a number of festive events throughout the month of December for our community to spread the festive joy!
We worked hard to ensure that all of our performances are Covid-safe, and some restrictive measures have been put in place along with a pre-booking system to avoid overcrowding our venues.
We got creative last summer and encouraged the locals to get involved with our online tutorials and guests. We were also on the look out for singers, dancers, performers, magicians, any talented individuals to share their talent with us.
