Downham Market Town Hall
Downham Market Town Hall
Town Hall is mid-Victorian and was erected as a memento of Queen Victoria’s
Golden Jubilee in 1887. It is a building of white and moulded brick, relieved by
brown carrstone panels in the Renaissance style, and designed by a firm of London
architects for the Town Hall Company, who raised the capital (£1,700) to cover
the cost of construction by public subscription, and came from people in all
walks of life.

West Norfolk for them to manage along with a number of other facilities within
the boundaries of Downham Market. In 2008 the building was passed back into the
care of the Town Council and so it remains today.

attend a wide variety of functions and events.
