TIMETABLE for re-opening Hebden Bridge Town Hall

In common with many other venues we have been closed to the public since 21st March 2020.

Government  regulations allowed us to open from 4th July but we are taking our time to get our preparations right and ensuring that our staff, tenants, volunteers and all users of the building can feel safe in using the Town Hall once again. So we are adopting a slow and steady approach.

The Town Hall, as I'm sure you know, is a complex site which supports multiple functions. This adds complexity to risk assessments, the guidance we have to understand and follow and the measures we need to put in place to ensure everyone is safe. On this basis our re-opening will take place initially on a reduced hours basis:

  • Weds 29th July to Fri 31st July inclusive we will be open 8.30am to 4pm (Café closing at 3pm every day), and
  • Weds 5th Aug to Fri 7th Aug inclusive we will again open 8.30am to 4pm (Café again closing at 3pm every day)

We’ll announce plans for 8th August onwards asap 

On these days and between these hours we can also now take room bookings: we are however limiting our room bookings to a maximum of 6ppl at any one time. More information about room bookings is available on our website here: 

We also think that one of our strengths in the new COVID-19 world is our business lounge (which has always been aimed at those who are struggling to work from home). More information about our business packages is here:

We are allocating more space to our Business Associates offer so we can help more people.

You can also ring us on 01422 417300 for more information on either.

In future blog posts we'll detail the arrangements we will have in place to meet Government guidance: but please bear with us as we open up again !
