STOCKPORT TOWN HALL AUTHOR TALK

2 - 3.30pm

Stockport Town Hall
Edward Street
Stockport

So many stories happen in the amazing, beautiful, ugly, impractical and sometimes contested town halls that are the civic heart of a community. Whether they’re grand Victorian edifices or brash 70s redbrick blocks, they occupy a unique position in the fabric of a place. This book -which features town halls from Manchester, Leeds, London City Hall, Bristol, Colchester, Todmorden, Stockport and more- explores the past, present and possible futures – told by the people who work in them, care about them or understand the importance of significant buildings in towns and cities.

Town Hall author and editor Dawn Reeves will be joined for her Stockport Town Hall talk by special guests.

Space is limited, book your free ticket here.
