Why is it important for Hornsey Town Hall to be brought back into long term use?

A:

Hornsey Town Hall is an iconic landmark for Crouch End and Haringey, with a rich arts and culture heritage. We want to restore the Grade II* listed building and make it accessible to the community and wider public on a permanent basis. Hornsey Town Hall was built in 1935 and is notable as one of the earliest modernist, continental-inspired Town Halls built in inter-war England. Much of the original decorative scheme survives, but it is fragile. The building is on English Heritage’s ‘Heritage at Risk’ register, making restoration even more important.
