Event description

Description

We shall see the original Art-Deco interiors and staircases, as well as the magnificent council chamber. Clocks, paintings and decorative panels have survived for nearly a century. We shall also hear about the history and ambitions of the combined boroughs of Islington and Finsbury in the 20th century. Islington Town Hall was designed in stages by the social housing architect E.C.P. Monson. It incorporated an Assembly Hall in the fashion of inter-war town halls, and it remains a landmark on Upper Street, a venue for weddings and a thriving entertainment centre. Those of us who grew up in Islington will remember school prize givings in the main hall, dances, the registering of births, marriages and deaths, and, on occasion, victory parades when Arsenal FC won a major trophy.
