Wem Town Hall looking along from Chapel Street on the evening of Tuesday September 20, 2011. This was not the Third Fire of Wem! A spectacular sunset provided the perfect backdrop for this unnerving image.

The present town hall replaced the 1905 structure that was burnt down in November 1995. Only the Victorian red-brick front was retained. Following closure, The trustees of Wem Town Hall Community Trust have worked hard, since 2006 to bring the Wem Town Hall back into community use. It is now a multi-use centre for arts, learning, community and enterprise.
