In 2004, the Limehouse Town Hall Consortium Trust (LTHCT) became custodians for the building. The Trust is a registered charity with the aim of conserving, repairing and adapting Limehouse Town Hall and promoting its use to advance public education and involvement in the arts. The Trust aims to bring the building back into full and sustainable community use.
The Trust was born out of the commitment of tenants who came together as mutual community interest organisations. Stitches in Time with Twentieth Century (which later morphed into the Boxing Club), Primal Pictures and Creative Week newspaper worked together to form the LTHCT. In 2001 when these tenants moved in there was mould growing up the inside walls, and water flowing down from the roof into the entrance hall and back door area. Thanks to the Trust’s hard work the mould is gone and the roof no longer serves as a water feature.
The Trust, with the support of English Heritage, Heritage Lottery Fund, Isle of Dogs Community Foundation, London Borough of Tower Hamlets, European Regional Development Fund, Architectural Heritage Fund, Pilgrim Trust, Alan Evans Memorial Fund, has undertaken invaluable surveying of the building, and completed repairs on the roof. The Trust is committed to continuing its plans to make the building accessible and to repair the main hall.
