Trowbridge is calling for your vote to secure £50,000 of National Lottery funding as part of this year’s People’s Projects. Town Hall Arts, which is based in Trowbridge provides opportunities for people of all backgrounds to be inspired by arts, culture and heritage in a building at the heart of its community and is one of five groups in the region in the running for a share of a life changing pot of £3 million up for grabs across the UK.

If successful, Town Hall Arts will look at using the grant to make improvements to the building, making it more accessible and welcoming, and would also be interested in hearing your ideas.

David Lockwood, Director at Town Hall Arts, said: “This is an exciting opportunity to raise awareness and support for our work and, with your help, to secure further much-needed funding. We urge local people to get behind us. If successful, this will help us to make an even bigger difference to our local community.”

Since 2005, the partnership between The National Lottery Community Fund, The National Lottery and ITV has given the public a say in how funding should be put to good use in their local area.

On Friday 5 April, Town Hall Arts showcased its project, Transforming Trowbridge Town Hall on ITV West Country at 6pm, telling local viewers exactly why they deserve to win. To be in with a chance of claiming the top prize, Town Hall Arts is asking people to support its bid by visiting the People’s Projects website to vote. Voting is now open! You can vote by following the link:

Voting closes at noon on Monday 15 April 2019. People can vote once per region and will need a telephone number or email address to vote. To support the Transforming Trowbridge Town Hall and for Ts & Cs please visit
