Residents and visitors are being urged to go along and take a look inside Burnley Town Hall as part of the national Heritage Open Days initiative.

The eye-catching building at the heart of Burnley has had an important role in the town’s heritage and will be open to the public on Friday, September 11th.

The tour will be led by historian Roger Frost.

The Mayor of Burnley, Coun. Liz Monk, said: “I’m delighted that the town hall is part of this nationwide event. The town hall is the focal point of the town and an important heritage asset.

“I’d like to encourage the community to visit the hall as part of the weekend to learn more about its history.”

Visitors will have the opportunity to join a guided tour at 2pm and learn more about the building’s history, view the impressive council chamber and visit the recently re-opened police cells.

Those wishing to attend can just turn up as the event is free and there is no need to book a place.
