Occasionally, our building is reminded of its true importance to our historic county. A message from our town council:
‘A Proclamation for the new King will take place at 3pm Sunday at The Shire Hall – Judge’s Lodging, Presteigne.

The road will be closed for a short time and members of the public are invited to attend to witness this historic event.’
