TRANSFORMATION PROJECT

A BRIGHTER KIDDERMINSTER

The Town Hall sits at the heart of Kidderminster Town Centre providing a venue for the community to share and enjoy.

What's happening at the town hall?

We have successfully secured £8 million in funding to complete transformational works to the Town Hall. This has come from the recently announced Levelling Up Fund. We have won this money in partnership with Wyre Forest District Council to improve Kidderminster for the community.

Improvements to the Piano Building and the Canal Towpath are included in Wyre Forest District Council’s application.

Now that funding is in place we have appointed a full design team led by Glenn Howells Architects, the Birmingham based award winning firm that have particular experience of delivering high quality performance and theatre spaces and so are ideally placed to transform the Town Hall’s existing facilities.

Their initial designs are now complete and it is these proposals that we now wish to consult upon before they submit for planning permission and listed building consent.

We are holding public consultations during January 2022 for further information and to view online plans please click here.
