Education

The Town Hall is an excellent resource when learning about local history. We welcome teachers to use the resources of this website to assist in their pupils studies. On this page you will find a small selection of downloadable documents which we hope to build upon in the future.

Town Hall Talks

We welcome visits by local groups keen learn more about the Silver and Regalia of the Town Council and the Town Hall itself. Town Hall talks (also known as Silver talks) are led by the Macebearer or on occasion a senior member of the Council and covers a basic history of the Town Hall, key items of the Silver and the Regalia, which are also on display throughout the talk.

It may also be possible for the group to visit the old cells and for the Mayor to be in attendance. If these are key considerations please make sure to mention them when enquiring about booking.

Groups have included, but are not limited to; Scouts, Guides, Brownies and Cubs; School groups and groups of adults

Talks are free, last about an hour and include some refreshments. It is possible to alter the talk to fit better with any needs or interests you may have, please discuss this when enquiring about booking.
