His Royal Highness has visited Interchange Trust on numerous occasions to encourage the work of the charity with disadvantaged members of the community and, particularly, young people many of whom and whose activities have received funding from The Princes Trust / Princes Youth Business Trust.

The newly refurbished Hampstead Town Hall Centre was opened by His Royal Highness the Prince of Wales on the 11th July 2000.
On the day, the Prince met and was greeted by members of staff and students and stayed to watch a dance production by students of WAC Performing Arts & Media College.

WAC provides training opportunities in the creative and cultural industries for 600 young people a year. It has a national and international reputation for innovative ways of teaching and learning offering access to cutting edge media and arts projects.
WAC Performing Arts and Media College (formerly Weekend Arts College) began over twenty five years ago as an initiative to provide training for young people from low income families in the performing arts.
It aimed to offer high level professional standard classes to enable those young people with talent to be in a position to apply to conservatories and specialist training in order to further their education.
Today, the organisation has extended the range of its programmes in a number of ways. It has fully developed a practice of arts education which values the general 'transferable' or 'key' skills young people learn from arts experiences. It provides dedicated training for digital media artists and specialised courses for young people with learning difficulties.
As WAC grew so it has specialised in training arts trainers to work in educational contexts. WAC is an accredited centre for NVQ's and works to support the growth of small businesses in the cultural industries and to facilitate the professional development of artists' careers. It is involved in a number of strategic research projects and partnerships aiming to influence the development of the education system.
WAC continues to give those young people who are marginalised by society priority access to all its programmes and this philosophy underpins its lifelong learning programmes.

The Victorian building was erected by public subscription in 1878 as a Vestry Hall for use by the whole community. With the establishment of Borough Councils in London 25 years later, a large Edwardian extension was added (at municipal cost) in 1911 and the building became Hampstead Town Hall. In coronation year 1953 The Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh visited the Town Hall during their tour of North London boroughs and Her Majesty conferred honours on civic dignitaries.
The buildings municipal and community use ceased in 1994 when it was closed.
Restoration - The Project
Following a successful community campaign in partnership with Interchange Trust (desperate for a new home), Camden Council supported a partnership project to rescue the Hampstead Town Hall Centre. The three principal partners were Camden Council, InterChange Trust and the Friends of Hampstead Town Hall. This partnership embraced the restoration of the Victorian and Edwardian buildings and the construction of a new adjoining Arts and Media Centre at a cost of £8.45m.
This was made possible by generous awards totalling £6.35m from the Arts Council of England (4.85m) and the Heritage Lottery Fund (1.5m). The matching funding (2.1m) has been raised by InterChange Trust supported by the Friends of Hampstead Town Hall.
The main contract was awarded to Baxall Construction Ltd. a family firm based in Kent: after preliminaries, work began in 1998 and was completed in June 2000.
The building project was managed by The Hamden Trust and the new complex is now the permanent home for InterChange Trust and for many other London charities.
