Wallsend Memorial Hall & People’s Centre, locally also known as the ‘MEM’, is a Grade II listed memorial and community hall and charity. The First Floor ballroom is amazing and still in use. The community it serves has gone through significant changes since its completion in 1925. The building has adapted and changed with it. The charity is in the process of looking into ways to utilise the full potential of their spaces. Our conservation study contributes to re-discovering and -interpreting, protecting and enhancing the historic legacy of this marvellous building. Whilst researching we discovered that originally, the building was meant to stretch all the way to Station Road. This explains the curious fact that a building of such stature is tucked away from the High Street. The next steps towards change are in the making and we will keep you up to date with this exciting project.
