“Nobody knows what they are talking about.”
Reviewed 7 June 2014

My Husband and I visited Middlesbrough for the first time so we thought we would got to the tourist information centre. We could see no road signs directing us to the centre so went into the Citizen Advise Bureau who told us there was no Information centre in Middlesbrough but the library might be able to help us. We had to keep asking directions but eventually found the library where we were told to go to the Town Hall on reaching there we were told we wanted the Box Office. So off we go again and eventually found the information centre but when we told them what trouble we had finding the place the woman behind the desk laughed, which was very annoying. After looking at the leaflets we asked if they had information on the Transporter Bridge which we knew was shut but thought it would be interesting to read about it. After turning all the cupboards and drawers out they produced a used sheet which had been stuck on the wall. Then asked did they sell postcards which they did but they were stuck on a board behind the desk, what they were hidden away for I really don't know. As a tourist we were made very unwelcome.

“Main Hall and Crypt entertainment”
Reviewed 14 May 2014

Probably the best venue in town for either concerts in the Main Hall or more intimate setting on the Crypt. Good atmosphere generated in this grade 2 listed venue and attracts decent acts that return because of the reception they receive. The town /area could do with a larger venue to attract more popular acts, but that does not detract from this impressive venue.

“Historical Gem”
Reviewed 23 March 2014

I had the pleasure of experiencing the Town Hall first hand because a friend had an office there so I was able to see parts of the building that is not normally on view.
It is a fascinating piece of history and of beautiful architecture which makes you feel a sense of pride in being from Middlesbrough.
I hope it remains the pride of Teesside because far too many gems have been destroyed in the past.

“A Convenient Cultural Centre for Teesside”
Reviewed 10 November 2013

Middlesbrough Town Hall is located in the central area of the town at the junction of Albert Road and Corporation Road. Its tall clock-tower makes it a very distinctive land-mark. The building acts as both an administrative and cultural centre for the Teesside area. As a social and cultural attraction, the Town Hall hosts a wide variety of entertainment that includes, 'pop' and classical concerts and various other forms of light entertainment. The venue has some good bar facilities - but sadly lacks any type of restaurant area. However, there is a good selection of near-by eating-houses available that adequately compensate for this short-coming. We regularly visit this venue, mainly, but not exclusively so, to attend classical concerts. We have always enjoyed our visits and found the staff to be very friendly and helpful. There is adequate and convenient ‘safe’ car parking facilities at, and near to, the venue. Undoubtedly, the Town Hall is a valuable, useful and convenient cultural centre for the people of Teesside and its surrounding areas.
