Please note that Whitchurch Civic Centre is temporarily closed whilst investigative and repair works take place in relation to the potential of RAAC within it’s structure. This is on the expert advice of Structural Engineers and our Corporate Landlord, Shropshire Council – the safety of the Public, our Patrons and Staff is paramount.
The Sports / Market Hall remains operational and other facilities may open with appropriate safety measures in place – the Centre’s Main Hall will remain closed for some time and, as an interim measure. Sadly this also means that events planned for the Main Hall are currently cancelled or re-arranged, please contact the organisers for further information. Some events held elsewhere within the building have been relocated to our Sports / Market Hall for the time being.
Please keep an eye on our social media (@wtcwhitchurch) for updates. In the meantime, all other activity remains unaffected.
Thank you for your understanding.

Please note that, following this Press Release, the decision was made to reduce the weekly Friday Market to the front of the Civic Centre only (Fruit/Veg and Fish) – again, other elements may be reintroduced, based on expert opinion, when safe to do so.
UPDATE (14th September 2023):
Please note that, due to the closure of Whitchurch Library until further notice, we will not be able to operate a temporary Reception Hub from this facility, which was the original plan. We are working on an alternative solution and hope to be able to provide an update shortly. In the meantime, with the exception of essential Facilities staff, our team will work remotely but respond to telephone messages and email.
