Lancaster Town Hall is a building suited to a special occasion. From the moment you enter the grand entrance, to the magnificent white marble staircase; ideal for photographs, to the richly decorated rooms, its grandeur is perfect for your wedding day.
With a license to hold civil wedding ceremonies or partnerships and receptions, it is perfect if you’re looking to hold your entire event in one location. There are rooms of various styles and sizes to choose from which can be decorated to your specifications. Also, our fully equipped kitchens can be hired in conjunction with your choice of caterer.
Our friendly staff will be on hand to help make sure your day goes to plan.
There are a number of beautiful rooms to choose from in which to hold both your civil ceremony and your reception:
The Council Chamber creates an intimate setting for your ceremony, arranged in a horseshoe and banked seating. Boasting historic detailing, the oak panelled Council Chamber houses the original Mayor’s Chair and ornately carved seating dating from 1909.
- Capacity: up to 45 guests
The Reception Room and the Banqueting Room are beautiful oak panelled rooms, ornately decorated with plenty of natural light. These rooms can be used for both civil ceremonies and receptions.
- Capacity: 45 Theatre Style, 50 Drinks Reception or Buffet

The Ashton Hall was originally built as a concert hall which is evident in the great height of the ornate ceiling which has received awards for its restoration. The focal point above the stage is a magnificent pipe organ housed in the original antique oak case. There is a sprung dance floor and bar facility to ensure your celebration lasts well into the night. The large stage offers endless opportunities for decoration and ensures all your guests see the bride and groom say “I do”.
