The Town Hall is yours. It’s somewhere you can use for whatever you want – to learn a new skill, meet friends, engage in culture, start a business – somewhere to play your part in our community – to join a choir, see your favourite bands, learn to ballroom dance It’s a place where you get to decide what happens and we work to make it happen. We exist to provide space and support for each person in our town, empowering and enabling you to live your fullest life. And have fun.

Our History

We’re inspired by our history. The Town Hall was opened in 1889 “for the benefit of the inhabitants of the town for ever”. In its early days, it housed a library, courts and cells. The local community came here for dances, concerts and performances. Since 2010, the Town Hall has been run by a charity, reanimating the historic building as the buzzing creative heart of Trowbridge.

Our Future

We have ambitious plans for our future. These include restoring the historic ballroom and improving the building to allow even more people to enjoy it. The Town Hall has existed for 132 years. If it is to succeed for another century, it needs to be guided by the people of the town. If you’d like a voice in the future developments, you can become a member of the Town Hall Trust.
