Heritage Open Day
Heritage Open Day – Reigate and Banstead Town Hall
Reigate Town Hall will be opening its doors on Saturday 10 September 2016. Having been completed in 1901, Reigate Town Hall is a fine example of a building in the Arts and Crafts style. When originally built, these municipal buildings housed not just the Council, but also the fire station, police station and the law courts. A tour will reveal this history and also give the opportunity to see how parts of the building have been adapted for your council today.
Historic photographs and a collection of paintings by acclaimed local artist William Tatton Winter are also housed here, and the old council chamber has a wonderful Art Nouveau ceiling.
There will be colouring activities for young children, and refreshments will be available with donations going to the Mayor’s chosen charity.
The Town Hall is a Grade II listed building.
Open: Sat. 10 Sept 2016. 11.00 – 15.00
Visitors can follow a guided route to see some of the special features.
Directions: Reigate and Banstead Town Hall, Castlefield Road, Reigate.
