Royal Town’s MP attends performance of the Messiah to fundraise for the Town Hall

20th January 2016

Andrew Mitchell, the Royal Town’s MP, attended a festive concert on Sunday, along with Sutton Councillors, in Sutton’s Town Hall organised by the Sutton Coldfield Arts and Recreational Trust. The concert was in aid of the efforts to raise funds to support the campaign to save Sutton’s historic Town Hall.

The Christmas concert was conducted by Richard Mason, who is leading the task force committed to saving Sutton’s Town Hall. Following performances from three of Sutton Coldfield’s finest choirs, the Sutton Coldfield Town Hall Users Group and guests discussed the future of the Town Hall over mince pies.

Negotiations over the future of the Town Hall continue to proceed well and the ball is now firmly in Birmingham City Council’s court to support the campaign following months of talks.

Andrew Mitchell said, “It was an absolute joy to watch and listen to the
Sutton Choral Society, Sutton Chamber Choir and the Emmanuel Choir. I am very pleased to see the determined community spirit which has been displayed for our Town Hall to save it for future generations.”
