NO BOOKINGS BEING TAKEN FOR 2024 TO 2026 AT PRESENT. Due to the Town Hall refurbishment taking place in early 2024, we will be closed for two years. Once work progresses and we have more of an idea of when the Town Hall will be reopening, we will readvertise online that we are taking bookings for 2026. Please note that we might not advertise bookings are open until late 2025.
The Mayor's Parlour, in the historic 18th Century Town Hall, is an elegant room with an intimate atmosphere for your ceremony, and is able to accomodate up to 40 guests, while the Assembly Room is a beautiful, spacious hall with a stage and can accomodate a ceremony of up to 120 guests.
Equipment is provided for the playing of CDs or iPods during the service. Your musical selection should be of a secular nature. A video camera may be used and guests will be given the opportunity to take photographs after the ceremony.
The Town Hall balcony, which overlooks the historic High Street, is availble for up to an hour after the ceremony, so that you can share a toast with your guests and take photographs.
The Assembly Room is the perfect place to gather with your friends and family after your ceremony, and can be booked for a reception or party, even if your ceremony is held elsewhere. It seats 100 people at tables or 150 people standing at a buffet style reception.
