Our Town Hall project began in January 2018 as a major update of the Grade I listed architecture piece. Investigations and surveys were done since 2014 to decide things that need to be restored for modern standards. The town hall will be re-open in 2024 for its people, with aims and objectives below:
1. Transform users’ and visitors’ experience
2. Enhance the use of town hall as a visitor destination and increase access to its people
3. Restore and celebrate the significant heritage asset
4. Deliver economic and social value for Manchester
5. Increase participation of civil society to reconnect people to the institution that represent them

Discussions have been ongoing to organize a Clock Tower visit with the team. As the restoration of the Town Hall has moved to the construction phase in March, further considerations in terms of safety and capacity will be implied hence the confirmation for the tour is yet to be confirmed. However, the initial thoughts were to be within the 3rd week of March.
