We are a small campaigning group, set up in 2014.

This Grade 2 listed building has been empty since 1996. Since 2004 it has been in the ownership of a London-based property development company.              

What we do know is that the building is in a serious state of disrepair, heavily damaged by water and partly collapsing inside.

Like many people in the city, the FRIENDS believe this situation is just unacceptable. The Old Town Hall should be an important asset for all of us, not a dirty, neglected blot on the landscape.

We The FRIENDS are seeking to protect and promote the former Town Hall and Courthouse, Waingate, Sheffield and support its restoration and re-use for the benefit of the City of Sheffield, its people and the wider community; and to support the sensitive regeneration of the historic assets which surround it.
