Civic rooms

The civic rooms on the second floor of the Town House are mainly used as venues for civic receptions, citizenship ceremonies and civil marriages/partnerships, as well as some large committee meetings and Council events.

These rooms are also available for private hire, and are often used for meetings, lectures, talks and seminars.

If you would like to hold an event in one of the civic rooms, please contact the Town Sergeants who can discuss your needs and explain the booking process. Please note that:

  • The civic rooms are not appropriate for all types of event, but when you get in touch we can advise whether they would be a suitable venue for your event.
  • We don't allow the use of outside caterers in the Town House so you must use the Council's own catering service for any catering required.

There is no charge for the use of the civic rooms by charities and Council departments during the normal opening hours of the Town House, which are 8am to 5pm, Monday to Friday. Outwith these times, the following charges apply:

  St Nicholas Room Town and County Hall
Up to 3 hours £75 £100
Half day (3 to 5 hours) £150 £200
Full day (more than 5 hours) £300 £400

Please note that VAT is applicable to these charges.
