Middlesbrough played a major part in the war effort. Join us to find out about life on the homefront and Middlesbrough’s contribution to the war. Some parts of the town were badly damaged by air raids, including the Town Hall. Please bring along any photos, items and special memories you may have. This discussion will focus on our local story. People’s personal family experiences of the bombs that dropped the damage that was done and the fighting spirit that kept people going.

The Town Hall's typical programme includes something for everyone from classical music to pop and rock, comedy's top stars and craft fairs.

Previous acts that have visited are Jimmy Carr, Jools Holland, the Royal Shakespeare Company, the Arctic Monkeys and the Moscow Philharmonic Orchestra.

Take part in performing arts classes. Middlesbrough Town Hall is also available to book for events.
