I was there for an event & now, due to cuts in the council, the hall has passed to Libraries & parks. The Art Gallery has removed all it's contents & it is empty with patches where the paintings & looking glasses once were, & boarded up. There is talk of a local group managing it but one must assume they will never get the contents back.
It is a great pity that this country doesn't respect art & architecture as it should. This house was given to the City, it is a tragedy that cuts in funding have lead to this.
There is currently no cafe in the park, though htey have put out an offer to tender, so hopefully there will be one again soon.
