Wisbech Corn Exchange - Towards the Future

Wisbech Corn Exchange -

Towards the Future

Corn Exchange, North Brink, Wisbech, Cambridgeshire, PE13 1JR

Visit, share memories, comment on plans towards the future of this historical local building!

Built in 1811, following plans by Joseph Medworth, as an Exchange Hall and Gentlemen's Club, the Corn Exchange became home to Wisbech Town Council in 1835, where it remains resident to the present day.

In the latter years of the 20th century, the Corn Exchange became a regular place for public entertainment – from Shakespeare recitations to dancing, rollerskating, wrestling and bingo. Appearances by major figures in the 1960s include The Rolling Stones, Jerry Lee Lewis, Lulu, Tom Jones, Adam Faith, Frankie Vaughan and The Hollies. The Corn Exchange closed in the early 1990s after initial plans to change its use to a cinema were halted.

Take a look at our video from a previous HOD event in 2018.

This year the trust has commenced a Project Viability Assessment supported with financial assistance from The Architectural Heritage Fund, the first stage toward realising the objectives and aims of the trust.
