Built by the Freemasons in 1871, the Town Hall was designed by the architect A B Bradby. In common with most Victorian buildings, styles were “borrowed” from previous periods in history. The Main Hall leans heavily towards the Jacobean period and has been decorated to emphasise the beamed ceiling.
The Town Hall is the largest venue in Wirksworth. During the Festival the venue is gifted by the Town Council for the Festival’s sole use. The Town Hall Events team organise the Festival’s performance programme. They also organise music and theatre events throughout the year. You can see their events programme outside of the Festival period here.
