The Hornsey Town Hall Creative Trust

Hornsey Town Hall Creative Trust, is the independent body set up in 2007 to oversee the regeneration of Hornsey Town Hall, the magnificent Grade II* Listed building in the heart of Crouch End.

Our vision

To create “a world class model of civic renaissance, an arena for all that harnesses the spirit of progress, community, creativity and enterprise for future generations in Haringey, London and beyond”

The Hornsey Town Hall Project

Hornsey Town Hall is to be redeveloped and reborn as a centre for arts and learning. HTH will be the new home of Mountview Academy of Theare Arts; HTHCT will continue to work with the London Borough of Haringey to ensure public benefit and community access to the Town Hall.

Hornsey Town Hall Update, October 2014

HTHCT continues to support the Mountview Project at Hornsey Town Hall and reiterated its support at the Gateway Review in December 2013. HTHCT participated fully in the subsequent Options Appraisal, undertaken by GVA (http://www.gva.co.uk/) on behalf of LBH. The Trust has responded formally to the Options Appraisal report, with copies of its response also sent to Cllr Claire Kober (Leader, LBH), Cllr Jason Arthur (Cabinet Member, Resources and Culture) and Nick Walkley (CEO, LBH).

The work on the Options Appraisal continues (October 2014). In addition to the Mountview proposals, LBH, with our input, is also looking at a range of mixed uses for Hornsey Town Hall. The good news is that LBH continues to support and has ringfenced the principle of community use and access for the historic parts of HTH (the foyers, committee rooms, Council Chamber, Assembly Hall, Mayor's Parlour etc), no matter which option is selected.

Mountview is developing an impressive community, education and arts outreach programme to sit alongside its work as one of the leading theatre schools in the UK. As you will have read, there is a significant funding gap in the Mountview proposals which need to be overcome and both LBH and Mountview are working hard together to find a solution to fill that gap. 

In the meantime, it is crucial that other options are explored to ensure a sustainable future for HTH which also fulfils community aspirations for this wonderful building.  so, in addition to working with Mountview and LBH, the Trust is playing an active role with LBH to develop these alternative proposals.
