A  revealing behind the scenes and honest account of the ups and downs of the original Hall for Cornwall Campaign, authors Chris Warner and Sarah Smith bring together the memories of those involved in the ambitious project of transforming the semi-derelict City Hall in Truro into a multipurpose hall and theatre.

In 1997 a brand new £6.5m 1,000 seat theatre and concert hall, which was also home to flea markets and commercial events, opened in Truro.

The book tells the story of how a small group of people came together to overcome local authority apathy and rapacious developers and, who, against all the odds, successfully campaigned for a new hall in Truro, Cornwall.

The story is told in a light-hearted way by the many people who, led by Chris Warner and Sarah Smith, helped to make it all happen. They have contributed their individual memories, be they kitchen staff or architects, structural engineers, or fundraisers.

They tell how and why the building was designed at that time, how they fundraised, who they cajoled into getting involved, from development to delivery.

Please note, this is a book and not an event at Hall for Cornwall.
