In praise of remarkable individuals

on Friday, 30 August 2019. Posted in Events

People are important. We know that. Or we think we do. But actually….
In the last few months, I’ve been struck by the number of times wise people have said “let’s depersonalise this” or “we should refer to job titles not people”. I get it. It’s a sensible way of taking personal feelings out of business decisions, to remain logical rather than being swayed by empathy.
I’m not so sure it is that wise though. Here’s why.

Cells Residency - Offenders

on Tuesday, 02 July 2019. Posted in Events

by Fiona Campbell

On Saturday I took down my last remaining piece - a huge Tongue sculpture - from the Cells.  Town Hall Arts had kindly allowed me to extend my residency for a few weeks so that I could stagger the process of de-installation.

My solo exhibition in the Cells at Town Hall Arts, ‘Offenders’ (9-31 May) was the culmination of an art residency there in April.  The incredible atmospheric basement holding cells date back to the Victorian era, historically used for suspected offenders (the grand magistrates court is on the floor above).  If convicted, prisoners would usually be sent to Shepton Mallet Prison.  My work responded to the site while confronting some world environmental horrors we are facing - factory-farming, plastic oceans, animal extinctions.  It posed a question ‘are we all offenders given the state of our world?’  The labour-intensive process of my work - weaving, wrapping, sewing - is a form of suturing, a cathartic attempt to repair in response to world destruction.  Ironically, it was such a pleasure to be given free rein in the Cells by Town Hall Arts, so I could test out new ideas and take risks.

People's Projects Results

on Thursday, 18 April 2019. Posted in Events

It’s with great sadness that I’m writing to say we were unsuccessful in the public vote for the People’s Projects. We were alongside four fantastic charities, all of whom were equally deserving of funding but, of course, we wished we’d had the funds to make the substantial changes to the building to make it more inviting, practical and accessible.

Trowbridge Town Hall Public Meeting

on Tuesday, 09 April 2019. Posted in Events

Good afternoon

I’m David Lockwood. I’m the new Director of Trowbridge Town Hall. And I need your help.

As you’ll likely know, Trowbridge Town Hall has proudly stood in the centre of the town since 1887. It’s survived two world wars, two Diamond Jubilees and The Who performing in the Great Hall. It’s been transformed into a Magistrates Court and then, a few years ago, reverted back to public use.

Governance Review

on Thursday, 04 April 2019. Posted in Work with us

Trowbridge Town Hall Trust invites tenders to undertake a governance review.

Trowbridge Town Hall is a Grade II listed building in the centre of Trowbridge, a market town in Wiltshire. Its construction was funded by local businessman William Roger Brown in 1887 and dedicated to be for “the benefit of the residents of the town for ever”. The building played a central role in civic life, including signing up volunteers for the First World War and hosting public meetings. In the 1960s, the Town Hall’s ball room hosted musicians including The Who, Cat Stevens and Rod Stewart. Shortly after this, the building was converted into a magistrates’ court.
