As part of the OJEU procurement process being used to dispose of Hornsey Town Hall to developers, Haringey is setting up a schedule of ‘interested organisations’. It is expected that developers bidding for the Hall, Square and Car Park will contact some of the organisations on the list to discuss a co-operative approach to refurbishing and running the Town Hall. The text below is the pitch put forward by Hornsey Town Hall Community Interest Company to gain the attention of developers.

Since November of last year, Hornsey Town Hall has been managed by three people as an arts centre – a wildly successful, community-loves-it Town Hall full of dance, theatre, art, music, markets, and small businesses. When they opened up spaces closed for decades, the potential of this building was revealed to thousands – a stark contrast to 20 years of neglect.
