Ideally situated in the town centre and close to shops, pubs, and close to the train and bus stations – not to mention the A66 and A19 road links – Middlesbrough Town Hall is situated near the Thistle Hotel, only 400 metres away, while a Travelodge is also within walking distance. You will also find Premier Inn and Best Western hotels a short drive away. Saturday and Sunday daytimes will be for photo shoots, autograph sessions, meet and greets etc. On the Saturday evening there is entertainment from our master of ceremonies Toby Hadoke plus a live band.
