Hornsey Town Hall Creative Trust is taking part in the formal procurement process for the regeneration of Hornsey Town Hall.
We worked with the council to draft the tender information, at the heart of which is long-term sustainable community and arts use alongside the much-needed refurbishment of this historic building. Over the coming months, the Trust will be evaluating and scoring developer/operator proposals for community and creative uses at Hornsey Town Hall as part of the procurement process. All bids will be considered and scored according to the criteria laid out in the tender documents.
