Connecting Crouch End and Hornsey with news, views and information
Viewing is from 10 am - 6 pm on Wednesday 7th. The sale starts at 6:30.
FEC will soon be taking vacant possession of Hornsey Town Hall ahead of beginning restoration and development works on the building.
The fixtures and fittings at Hornsey Town Hall are listed and therefore FEC will be restoring and putting these back into HTH when the building reopens as an arts centre and hotel in 2020/21. We’re very pleased to confirm that FEC will also be retaining and restoring many of the building’s most distinguishing loose items including furniture to ensure that the unique character of the Town Hall is preserved for future generations. Although FEC’s more detailed plans have yet to be finalised, we welcome their willingness to incorporate so much of the Town Hall’s original features into their restoration. We hope to be able to share further details of their restoration of key features shortly.
You’ll also be aware that the Town Hall currently contains a lot of non-listed furniture and other items, such as filing cabinets, assembly chairs, disused props, old theatre equipment, etc. and although FEC is able to restore and retain many of these in the building, it won’t be possible to accommodate all of these items in to the restored building and the council has limited storage capacity to keep items indefinitely.
We’ve therefore decided to go ahead with the previously considered option of a public auction, and this has been scheduled for next Wednesday, March 7.
The auction will include non-listed items only. Any money raised from the auction will be donated to the Mayor of Haringey’s Special Fund, which supports the work of two local mental health charities – Mind in Haringey and Studio 306.
