Rejuvenation of Leamington Town Hall underway

Leamington Editorial 11th Jun, 2024   0

THE REJUVENATION of Leamington Town Hall is underway.

The first phase to establish a new Creative Hub at the historic building has begun with a programme of work to sensitively refresh and upgrade the public areas into more accessible and flexible spaces.

A team of specialist contractors will be on site until early 2025, in a project that will see the creation of an uplifted and more welcoming entrance and reception area, the opening up of the first-floor corridors and the installation of a modern rear extension providing new toilet facilities and a passenger lift.

The work to develop a Creative Hub at the town hall is the second major project to be integrated into Leamington’s Creative Quarter plans and follows the flagship Spencer Yard redevelopment. Both projects have received significant investment from the Government’s Future High Street Fund.




Throughout the works, access will be maintained for current tenants including staff from both Warwick District and Leamington Town Councils and cultural organisations Motionhouse and Leamington Music, with particular care being made for the welfare of the peregrine falcons nesting in the tower.

WDC’s art spokesperson Coun Philip Clarke said: “For 140 years Leamington’s Town Hall has played a central role in the in the cultural and civic life of the town and wider district. It’s therefore wonderful to see a bright new future evolving for this important historic building, opening up exciting new public spaces at heart of the local community.”
