From about 1995 to 1998 the Town Hall was our Teesside music sanctuary. One of the go to venues for 90’s Britpop. Suede, Ash, Sleeper, Terrorvision, Mansun, Kula Shaker…the soundtrack to our youth. No other venue has ever compared. I remember the 14 year old me booking tickets and then thinking “I’ll get back to Hartlepool after the gig somehow”.
