Hornsey Town Hall Creative Trust welcomed Haringey Council’s Cabinet decision on Tuesday 26 April, to move ahead with proposals to restore the landmark Grade II* listed building and invite Mountview Academy of Theatre Arts to make the venue its home.
The partnership will bring the Town Hall back into use, restore heritage features, see a world-class drama school in Crouch End, allow access to public spaces for the first time in many years, and offer a host of community benefits.
HTHCT will continue to work with both Haringey Council and Mountview Academy of Theatre Arts on community access to the Town Hall and is particularly interested in ensuring there is a robust mechanism for maintaining public benefit throughout the 125 year lease.

The case for supporting this option was made in our statement of 14 April 2011 which you can access here.
