Major rewiring scheme
The last few months have seen a major investment in the future of the Town Hall. Hidden away and unseen by our visitors, the electrical system has received a major upgrade. The works will secure the future of the building for the next 60 to 80 years.
New distribution boards, three new submains and new switch gear have taken been carefully designed and installed to the latest safety standards, future-proofing our facilities for many years to come.
New Hearing Loop Brings Clarity
Thanks to a successful grant application to Foundation Derbyshire, BTCT have been able to install new hearing loop facilities. Crystal-clear sound is now available for all events and activities in the Court Room Gallery. Our shows and films can be enjoyed by everyone with a new system in the Assembly Room Theatre. You can even visit the Box Office and select the T-setting.
There is a portable loop system available for the Council Chamber too. We are grateful to Foundation Derbyshire, The Derbyshire Freemasons, and Chris Fox for designing and fitting the system.
