6:00am Friday 7th February 2014 in News
A FORMER museum in Oxford’s Town Hall in St Aldates has been turned into a space for arts and cultural events.
The new venue is the first stage in a three-year plan to refurbish the former Museum of Oxford.
Ceri Gorton, cultural development manager, said the three-year programme will cost £1.3m with a fundraising campaign set for the museum’s 40th anniversary in 2015.
The museum was redeveloped with Heritage Lottery Fund cash.
Former Town Hall offices became the Explore Oxford galleries.
