The first phase in the journey to establishing a new Creative Hub at Leamington’s Town Hall will begin this week.

Enabling works are currently in progress for 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 having 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.

Warwick District Council’s Head of Place, Arts and Economy Philip Clarke commented: “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.”
