Hire The Great Hall

Experience the grandeur and beauty of The Great Hall – an awe-inspiring space that’s sure to leave a lasting impression on you and your guests.

The Great Hall at Rochdale Town Hall.

Adorned with stained glass representations of England’s monarchs, from William the Conqueror to Victoria and Albert, the vaulted space of The Great Hall is truly magnificent.

Our largest space has the capacity to accommodate 350 seated guests, or up to 250 if you want room to dance the night away.

Whatever the occasion, your event will be overseen by a chorus of oak-carved angels, adding a touch of elegance and charm to ensure your event will be nothing short of remarkable.

We’ve recently added a new bar, so guests can enjoy a wide range of refreshments as they take in the stunning surroundings.

From business awards to festivals and concerts to conferences, The Great Hall is the perfect space to host your event.
