Hornsey Town Hall and the activities that took place in and around it were once at the heart of the community and the pride of the borough of Hornsey.
Commissioned through a design competition won by Reginald Uren in1934, Hornsey Town Hall is an outstanding example of pre-war civic architecture. In 2003 Hornsey Town Hall was identified as surplus to the needs of the Council and has been largely vacant since 2005. Since then, the London Borough of Haringey and Hornsey Town Hall Creative Trust have been working in partnership to find a sustainable future for this magnificent Grade II* listed building.
In 2010 Mountview began discussions with the Hornsey Town Hall Creative Trust and the London Borough of Haringey and in April 2011 the Council and the Trust backed plans for Mountview to move to a new home in the Hornsey Town Hall in 2016/17. The proposals envisage a major capital project intended to create world-class facilities for a key cultural enterprise in the borough, sensitively restoring the iconic building and contributing to the revitalization and economic prosperity of the area.
Working closely with the Council, Mountview plans to take responsibility for the refurbishment of the building and its day-to-day running with a vibrant programme of arts training and events whilst ensuring continued public access and offering a wide range of education and community activities. Two new theatre spaces will present an exciting mix of student, professional and community productions for the public to enjoy supported by talks, workshops and special projects.
