Find Rochdale Town Hall

​In light of the current situation, Rochdale Town Hall is closed. It will reopen on government advice when safe to do so. It will then close again on 1 January 2021 so we can renovate the building. We expect the town hall to reopen in 2023.

​​​​​​​​Rochdale Town Hall is just a short walk from the transport interchange and with plenty of parking, is easily accessible by bus, tram, train or car.
