His Worship the Mayor of Pendle, Councillor James Keith Starkie, invites you to come with him on a special guided tour of Nelson Town Hall.

It’s a chance for people to go behind the scenes and find out about the building’s fascinating civic history.

Visitors can also discover how the present day Pendle Council runs and what the Mayor’s job entails.

The tour will be held on Saturday 20 October 2018 at 11am at Nelson Town Hall.

Councillor Starkie said: “I’m looking forward to hosting this tour of Nelson Town Hall in my role as Mayor of Pendle.

“If you’ve ever wondered what lies behind the doors of the Town Hall, book yourself onto our tour!”

Trish Judson, the Mayor’s attendant, will be the guide for the free, hour-long fascinating factual journey.

Visitors will be shown the old police cells, the Council Chamber and civic insignia before having tea and biscuits in the Members’ Room.

Groups, such as Women’s Institutes, Brownies, Scouts and voluntary organisations, as well as individuals, are all welcome.

Up to 20 people can attend the tour and places must be booked in advance.  The deadline for booking is Wednesday 17th October 2018.
