HISTORY :-

A Guildhall has stood here for about 700 years. The current building, also known as the town hall, was erected in 1770 with a market hall on the ground floor. The basement is thought to date from the 1620s.

Alterations started in 1888 created a magistrates’ court on the ground floor and a theatre upstairs. There was already a tradition of plays and other entertainment in the Guildhall. One of the early cases in the courtroom was that of brothel keeper Minnie Price, 50, jailed for a month in 1893 after soldiers and civilians were seen entering her house in The Struet.

Many events were held here in the First World War. Local suffragists (who argued for votes for women but without the suffragettes’ militant tactics) put their campaigning on hold to focus on fundraising and providing nurses for hospitals in France and Serbia. They held a meeting in the town hall in January 1915 where a guest from London spoke about “women’s work in wartime”.
