Assembly Rooms

For more than two centuries Assembly Rooms has been at the heart of the capital, hosting royalty, celebrities and nobility. This breathtaking building offers versatile spaces to tailor make memorable events, from intimate meetings to large scale conferences.

Assembly Rooms can host dinners for up to 430 guests, conferences for up to 550 (or 750 with catering restrictions) and receptions for up to 1000. Immersed in history, the unique city centre venue offers a range of flexible spaces including:

  • Music Hall: grand and glamorous with fixed and mobile retractable seating and stage
  • Ballroom: elegant, ornate and extremely flexible for theatre style conferences, exhibitions or seated dining
  • East and West Drawing Rooms: spectacular smaller spaces for parallel sessions, workshops or meetings

With specialist support on hand from the AR team at every stage, accessible facilities and state-of-the art production, Assembly Rooms is the home of inspiring events.
