Launceston Town Hall and Guildhall

Category: 

Launceston Town Hall was built in 1887, and completely refurbished in 2010.  The main hall is ideal for weddings, theatre productions, films, exhibitions, balls, dinners, dances, concerts, , fashion shows, private parties, fetes & fayres.   We have 18 round tables which seat up to ten, 300 comfortable red and gilt chairs, and 22 black and gilt chairs.  Trestle tables and other chairs are also available.  All hires include use of our cutlery, crockery and glasses if required. Full disabled access. Fully disabled access throughout.

The Guildhall was built in 1881.  It has magnificent stained glass windows, with a soaring wooden ceiling.  Portraits of former Mayors add to the sense of history and grandeur.  The Guildhall still has its original gas lamps – although they now run on electricity.  The Guildhall is used by Launceston Town Council as the Council Chamber, but it is also available for board meetings, presentations, weddings, auctions and exhibitions.

The Otho Peter Suite is named after the original architect of the Town Hall, a member of a prominent Launceston family.  There are two rooms, which can be used separately or as one larger room.  Otho Peter Room 2 has a fixed screen.  Blackout is available in both rooms.  An additional screen and a projector are available to hire if needed.  Free Wi-Fi is available throughout the building.  This is a very flexible space, suitable for a variety of uses.

The Dunheved Bar was created during the refurbishment in 2010.  The bar area links the main hall with the Guildhall and other parts of the building.  There is a contemporary bar area with a specially commissioned Cornish tartan carpet, leading onto a slate floored area with a glass roof giving lovely views of the clock tower.  The area can be used by itself or as part of a larger hire.  The professional kitchen is adjacent to the bar, and is fully equipped for all functions.   We can recommend caterers, or hirers may organise their own catering if they prefer.

The Town Hall has a full premises licence.
