Town Hall Theatre, Hartlepool


"Originally the Town Hall [of West Hartlepool], the building was built in conjunction with the former Technical College (now demolished), with the foundation stone being laid on the 18th December 1895 by Councillor George Pyman JP. The formal opening took place on the 1st October 1897.  The building is beautiful and ornate and was designed by architect Henry Arthur Cheers of Twickenham in the Tudor Gothic style. Above the window on Raby Road sits a carved Coat of Arms of West Hartlepool. In 1977 the building was renovated as a theatre and the Technical school was demolished late in that year." (CultureHarlepool)

The building is Grade II listed on the National Heritage List for England.
