Memorial Court, Northwich. As part of the regeneration of Northwich Town Centre, Cheshire West and Chester Council are planning to build a new cultural space to replace the Northwich Memorial Hall. We would be pleased if you could take five minutes to let us know what you and your family would like to come to see and do at the new Memorial Centre (MC) when it opens in 2015. Cheshire West and Chester Council and Brio Leisure have a developing arts and cultural programme for the venue which we will enhance and extend as we consult with the community, cultural and educational partners.
