Next month, you can take an architect-led tour of Haringey’s Civic Centre, a Grade II-listed modern building designed in 1938 but thanks to WWII, wasn’t built until 1958.

The Civic Centre has been home to many of Haringey’s important historical moments. In 1985 Bernie Grant was elected leader, becoming the first-ever black leader of a local authority in Europe. It is also a favourite film and TV set location featuring in season 3 of the Crown, doubling up as The Middlesex Hospital and the Guardian offices.

The council moved out in 2020 to allow the building to be refurbished.

When complete, the building will have a new annexe, office spaces, and restored civic spaces, which will allow the return of its democratic activities.

Join Haringey Council, Hawkins Brown Architects and Montagu Evans Heritage and Planning Consultant specialists, for a guided tour and hear about its heritage, architecture and what’s next for the building.

The dates of the available tours are:

  • Thursday 6th June 5pm – 7pm
  • Friday 7th June 12pm – 2pm

Tickets are free and can be booked here.

This website has been running now for over a decade, and while advertising revenue contributes to funding the website, it doesn't cover the costs. That is why I have set up a facility with DonorBox where you can contribute to the costs of the website and time invested in writing and research for the news articles.

It's very similar to the way The Guardian and many smaller websites are now seeking to generate an income in the face of rising costs and declining advertising.

Whether it's a one-off donation or a regular giver, every additional support goes a long way to covering the running costs of this website, and keeping you regularly topped up doses of Londony news and facts.

If you like what you read on here, then please support the website here.

Thank you

    I understand that tickets have now all gone: I posted (with namecheck) this story on Harringay OnLine and learnt that there.
