Yeadon Town Hall Restoration
We're making changes to improve Yeadon Town Hall for our community, but we still need to raise funds to support the works. Can you help?
Our restoration work includes:
External repairs, new clock faces and stone restoration
We're excited to announce that Leeds City Council are funding over £750,000 of works. This includes major repairs to the roof, exterior walls, stained glass and restoration of the clock faces and clock tower, this work is currently ongoing and is expected to be finished by December 2020.
Bar & Upper Foyer
We've completely redesigned the bar layout to provide more space and better flow for busier shows. An exciting development has included removing the 1950s ceiling in the bar area to reveal the original double height Victorian ceilings and stained glass windows which have been hidden for over 50 years. This work is currently ongoing and we hope to be finished by August 2020.
Reception Desk & Box Office
We've created a new accessible Reception Desk / Box Office which will be open during day and pre-show for general enquiries, ticket sales and ticket collection. This work is now completed.
Refurbished Toilet Facilities
Regular users of the Town Hall will be pleased to know that all the Town Hall toilets will be refurbished over the next 24 months. We are also planning to fully refurbish the kitchen facilities. We have yet to complete these works.
Whilst the Main Auditorium currently looks in good condition, there are several elements we wish to improve further. These areas include replacing and renewing the ailing curtains, the stage floor, the stage rigging equipment and improving the decoration scheme to complement the historical architecture. We have completed many of these works.
We plan to decorate all areas of the building over the next 24 months, including replacing all flooring and curtains where required.
Dressing Rooms & Choir Risers
We have created a new star dressing room for visiting artists, whilst other dressing rooms will be improved in future months.
