It’s goodbye for now – the Guildhall concert hall is set to close temporarily from the end of September. St Ives Town Council are excited to announce that the Guildhall
This project will celebrate the Guildhall’s rich past, confirming its role as the civic and cultural heart of the town and re-imagining it for future generations.
The Guildhall is managed by St Ives Town Council and has been since 2013. The hall has always provided a space for live performance and entertainment for the local community.
In 2019, the Town Council began a regeneration project to breathe new life into the building. It is now proud to have secured £3.1 million through the St Ives Town Deal as part of the £19.9 million Government ‘Towns Fund’. This significant once in a lifetime funding is the catalyst ensuring the council’s aims and ambitions will be realised.
How we will do this?
BUT this is not all about the building
We want to use our working venue to provide jobs, training and work experience opportunities for young people, supporting our creative sector locally and regionally.
The project is locally lead by a not for profit, which ensures that investment is recycled back into the local community.
How will we know if we have succeeded?
What’s happening when?
