The show must go on! Tamworth Assembly Rooms may have closed for refurbishment but audiences will not miss out this autumn and winter as a number of popular events will be taken out into the community to ensure the show goes on.

Annual favourites such as Tamworth Arts Club productions, Christmas concerts and the pantomime will continue as part of ‘Tamworth Assembly Rooms on Tour’, which aims to make sure the theatre’s regular users still get opportunities to perform while the venue is extended and modernised.

Archaeologists dig in to explore Tamworth’s history

Archaeologists excavating the car park next to Tamworth Assembly Rooms have made an interesting discovery during their search for clues about the town’s history.

Tamworth Borough Council commissioned Wessex Archaeology to explore the site of the Corporation Street car park before the land is built upon as part of the redevelopment and restoration of Tamworth Assembly Rooms.

“Over my dead body”

Tamworth Assembly Rooms Archaeological dig drew to a close this week following 2 weeks of excavating ahead of the extension and redevelopment of the building. Although we didn’t find our ‘king in the car park’ it did provide a small glimpse at Tamworth from times past.

Disabled car park at Assembly Rooms to close on September 5

The car park between Tamworth Assembly Rooms, the Carnegie Centre and Tamworth Library is to close permanently on Monday September 5.

The eight spaces, which are only for the use of Blue Badge holders, are being closed to allow archaeological works to take place ahead of the restoration and redevelopment of Tamworth Assembly Rooms.

Drivers who currently use the car park are being reminded that a number of new disabled spaces have been created in the Aldergate car park, after Blue Badge holders said they wanted to see more disabled parking in the town centre.
