Accrington Town Hall is a beautiful Grade ll Listed Building in the heart of East Lancashire. A stunning refurbishment programme has created a range of fantastic spaces for weddings and events, including the Ballroom, undoubtedly the main attraction of this building.

Dating back to 1858, the ballroom has undergone a respectful restoration to enhance its striking original features while bringing its facilities right up-to-date for modern events and functions.  It has a capacity of 350 theatre style, whilst 240 people can comfortably be accommodated for larger parties wishing to enjoy a Wedding Breakfast or any event serving a three course dinner.

The multi functional ballroom space features a fully sprung dancefloor – the only other of its kind in the North West is at the Tower Ballroom in Blackpool.

With striking acoustics and a cutting-edge multi-coloured indoor & outdoor lighting scheme, the revamped ballroom is serviced by two new bars – one located behind the stage area and a mezzanine cocktail bar overlooking the Ballroom itself.

The Cocktail Bar is the perfect break out space for your wedding or large event, yet also lends itself as an intimate space for smaller events catering for up to 50 people.

2019 is another year to look forward to, as Accrington Town hall embarks on its final phase of refurbishment as we create a new range of features on the ground floor including The Vintage and Acorn Suites. The suites will be available to hire for medium sized events or to accommodate smaller intimate weddings. A ground floor bar will also be created accessible from either suite.

Every couple has a clear idea of how they would love their wedding to be. Settling for anything less than “The Wedding of Your Dreams” is not a package option we offer. Let us know your wants and desires, your aspirations and taste; so that we can put together a package that will be perfect for you.

We pride ourselves on being flexible, no two weddings at Accrington Town Hall are the same.
