For those looking for something a bit different and unique for their wedding venue, Battersea Arts Centre provides an eclectic mix of Victorian architecture and theatrical flair.
As event professionals, we can provide you with everything you need, from expert technical advice for dramatic décor, to top-quality bespoke catering.
Our venue is located in an area of Zone 2 London with excellent transport links, so takes the headache out of travel for you and your guests.
Grand weddings can be held in the spacious Council Chamber on our south-facing first floor. Thiswood-panelled banqueting hall-style space boasts an adjoining room which can be used as a bar area or cloakroom for guests to mingle or relax away from the rest of the party.
Another fantastic space for your celebration is the Member’s Library, one of Battersea Arts Centre’s most sought after spaces. This light and airy room is the perfect place for you and your guests to enjoy an intimate drinks reception.
Most impressive perhaps, is the iconic marble double staircase that curls out of the foyer's mosaic floor; a stunning area to host your reception, or better, to hold an unforgetable marriage ceremony.
Following a devastating fire in 2014, The Grand Hall is being completely refurbished and is ready to hire from January 2019. The restoration will give the space a greater flexibility and technical capability, while retaining the shape and footprint of the original Victorian ballroom. This improved infrastructure makes us able to accommodate ambitious and innovative events like never before.
The Grand Hall is serviced by its own kitchen and adjoining bar, with a redesign by artist Jake Tilson. The Grand Hall has its own entrance, so can be accessed privately, and hire of the space includes use of the stunning mosaic floor and stained glass domed-Octagonal Hall. There are several dressing rooms at either side of the proscenium arch, which have kitchenette facilities and showers.
Our iconic building has hosted 125 years of events in Battersea, surrounded by unique décor that oozes character and charm. We are here to guide and support you though the whole process, so get in touch to see how we can help create your dream wedding.
