Revealing City Hall

Through the ‘Revealing City Hall’ project, Hall for Cornwall are hosting a programme of events and activities that share and celebrate the building’s rich history. Storylines are exploring the buildings history through the stories of people who have lived, loved and laughed within these walls to generate a series of digital stories.

The beating heart of Cornwall for over 170 years, Hall for Cornwall call Truro’s old City Hall their home. Built back in 1847, the building is Grade II* listed and full of secrets waiting to be shared. In 2018 HFC won a National Lottery Heritage Fund grant to do just that.
