You may have heard that Town Hall Arts is busy fundraising to keep our fabulous building open to the public. If we fail in our mission to secure at least £35K per year, meaning the building has to close, we will refund artists' application fees. The final decision will be made by the end of June 2018 - or sooner if the funding is secured.
