Brierley Hill Civic Hall has been host to artists, performers and theatre production since the 1960s and is in the heart of our community. But in recent years, its usage had dropped while costs have remained or risen. The Hall was often closed during the day and it was not operating at its full potential as a hive for all sorts of activity.
Rejuvenating the Civic
In February 2015, Dudley Council entrusted Dudley CVS with rejuvenating Brierley Hill Civic Hall on an 18-month trial. This is part of Dudley MBC's move to become a 'community council', a council that enables and supports communities to do things for themselves rather than being a body that does things to or for people and communities.
Dudley CVS have increased the usage of the hall, attracting big acts to Brierley Hill, making it not only the largest borough hall but the one most people want to visit!
