8:00am Friday 23rd August 2013 in Local
DUDLEY Council is throwing open its doors to provide a sneak peek into the corridors of power.
Visitors to the Council House in Priory Road on Saturday September 14 will have a chance to learn more about the building and take a look around usually restricted areas like the council chamber and mayor's parlour.
Behind-the-scenes tours will be part of national Heritage Open Day and will be one of a range of family-friendly events at the Council House, starting at 11am to 3pm.
Guided tours of the council chamber, including a talk about how the council works and the insignia will start at 11.30am, 12.30pm, 1.30pm and 2.30pm when people can also see the mayoral badge, chain and mace.
There will also be photographs of Dudley town centre over the years and a children’s trail, quiz and colouring activities.
Attractions will also include performances from the Black Country Ukulele Players (BCUPS) on the council house steps throughout the morning.
Councillor Alan Finch, Mayor of Dudley, said: “Dudley borough has a very proud heritage and it’s important that the council opens its doors to everyone so people can come and take a look around. We will have fun activities for children as well as interesting exhibitions and tours so there really is something for everyone.”
