Ruthin is a vibrant little town with plenty going on. Keep up to date with all our goings-on.

Ruthin Town Council are pleased to reveal that after a lengthy period of negotiation they have been successful in purchasing the Old Courthouse from former owners RBS.

The Town Council are grateful to RBS and acknowledge their support of the ambitions of the Council to see this important building in community ownership, and that the purchase has been at a viable and cost effective price for the Council.


Ruthin Town Council’s key aim is to create:
A Civic, Community and Visitor Hub in the heart of St Peter’s Square - to increase footfall and vibrancy in the town centre, and support existing attractions, businesses and community organisations, with a high quality, sustainable community and visitor facility that adds value to the community and Town Centre experience and delivers quality, innovation and celebrates Ruthin’s unique sense of place.

This unique facility will allow multiple activities to take place day and evening. It will include a multipurpose hall that in the day will have an innovative digital & audio enhanced exhibition illustrating the history of Ruthin, its people and of key events in the building and towns timeline; as well as a seasonal art exhibition by local artists. During the evening and for key events the exhibitions will fold away and allow the hall to be configured with a variety of room layouts, either for Council meetings, small concerts, talks, presentations, film showings, and other
activities arranged by many of the Town's community groups and organisations.
