The Mayor's Parlour is a bright and airy space with stunning stained glass windows and a fireplace, which is a favourite for smaller events, meetings and rehearsals. Interconnecting doors allow this space to be used in conjunction with the Council Chamber, and it is regularly used as an extension or anteroom for larger events.
Once the original Vestry Hall for the Town Hall, the Council Chamber is the most architecturally significant space, featuring an original and highly ornate moulded ceiling, floor to ceiling columns and stained glass windows. Located on the ground floor, The Council Chamber is a flexible space ideal for parties and receptions, conferences, launches and talks and can be hired as a singular room, as a breakout, or complimented by the Mayor's Parlour, the adjacent space.
The Assembly Hall is an ideal location for corporate dinners, product launches, conferences, talks and other events. The high ceilings, Italian marble panelled walls, Matcham style balcony and glorious architectural features give the Assembly Hall a distinctive feeling of grandeur and elegance. The option to include the Balcony allows for a full capacity of 772 theatre style, while removable seating on the stalls level maintains the room's versatility and has full production capabilities, making a seamless transition from ornate Victorian hall to suit any event requirements.
The Large Committee Room is the largest of the three interconnecting rooms on the first floor. High ceilings and large windows along its full length give the room plenty of natural daylight and make this one of the lightest and brightest spaces at the Town Hall. With distinctive period features, Edwardian fireplaces and an elegant buttressed ceiling, it is ideal for private parties, networking drinks, receptions and meetings.
The Ditch is the untouched basement space of the original Grade II listed building. A dozen interconnecting rooms with original features, exposed brickwork and pipes, fireplaces and stoves provide a unique and intimate setting events. With its own secret, speak-easy entrance on Old Street, The Ditch is an exclusive warren of spaces to discover with an atmospheric, distressed aesthetic, hidden in the heart of Shoreditch. It can be transformed to create an immersive setting for product launches, creative fundraising events, unique receptions, conference breakout spaces and even dining.
The Medium Committee Room adjoins both the Large and Small Committee Rooms with interconnecting doors and is a popular venue for presentations, rehearsals, castings and meetings. Like all of the Committee Rooms, it benefits from the privacy of its own corridor, and offers a functional space with natural daylight for all events.
