  • Visitor Information

A grade II listed building and registered with English Heritage as a building of great historical significance. In 1965, the Finsbury Council was absorbed by the newly extended Islington Borough. In October 2005, the Finsbury Town Hall was acquired by the Urdang Academy, a performing arts school that was formerly based in Covent Garden. Urdang lovingly restored the building before relocating in January 2007. This historic monument was lovingly renamed The Old Finsbury Town Hall and is now holding weddings again, continuing a hundred year tradition, as well as banquets and events.
