People will be able to learn more about the future of Huntingdon’s Commemoration Hall at the building’s annual meeting tonight (Monday).

The hall, in the High Street, has been closed for six months because of plans to upgrade the building, which is Grade II listed.

Progress on the plans will be discussed at the meeting, which starts at 7pm and is open to the public.

The ambitious plans are designed to take the Commemoration Hall, which has been open for 175 years, into the future as a centre for arts and entertainment.

The aim is to boost use of the historic building by modernising the interior, including the dressing rooms, lighting, bar and kitchen areas.
