Lambeth Town Hall set to reopen – with new community rooms for hire

Lambeth’s newly refurbished Town Hall on Brixton Hill is set to reopen with neighbouring residents of Arlington Lodge and Porden Road joining Brixton Hill councillors as the very first guests of the Mayor in the Mayor’s Parlour later today. Staff will begin to move back in and internal works will be completed over coming weeks and Lambeth residents will soon be able to see the transformation of the 1908 Grade II listed building.

While several rooms in the Town Hall will be available at commercial rates to bring in income to the Council to support services to the public, two rooms will be set aside specifically for community use. The two rooms, at the front of the Town Hall, can accommodate 8 or 16 people boardroom-style, or more for meetings.

They will be available for £25 or £40 per hour, with no peak rates and a minimum hire period of just one hour, unlike the rest of the building. Bookings of two hours or less in the community rooms will not require a damage deposit. In the rest of the building, a discount of 50% on the core hire fee will be applied to community/charity use for larger events.
