One of Handsworth hidden gems got some much earned recognition in May, the Old Town Hall was erected in 1460 and is one of Handsworths oldest buildings. I think it is a real hidden gem most people have no idea that this wonderful building is right on their doorstep.
The Old Town hall is just off Slack Lane in Handsworth and is looked after by the Handsworth Historical Society, all volunteers.
The society were delighted in May to win the Arts & Culture Award at the Pride in Handsworth Award and said “that they had never in over forty years been recognised for the work they have done”.
On the 11th May they were also delighted to welcome the Lord Major & Majoress to the Old Town Hall
