Assembly Room

The magnificent Assembly Room is the largest room in City Hall, accommodating up to 500 guests for a wedding / dinner or 600 delegates for a conference.

The richly-decorated ceiling provides a delightful canopy for all types of events, but belies the fact that the Assembly Room can also host the most hi-tech presentations. A stage is provided and additional staging, lighting, sets and exhibition systems can be easily accommodated in this spacious room. Thus the Assembly Room is a very flexible and adaptable venue, whether for a gala dinner, prestigious award ceremony or state-of-the-art conference. Access to the Assembly Room is through the elegant Marble Hall, so this room is often used in a supporting role for refreshments, pre-dinner drinks or exhibitions.

The venue had welcomed a variety of international conferences and high-profile events over recent years, including international software workshops and European Council Meetings.
