Hackney Town Hall – 8 decades of excellence

Having recently celebrated its 80th birthday with the completion of a 12-year ​multi-million-pound refurbishment, ​the Hackney Venues team is thrilled that the enchanting ​Hackney Town Hall ​is a finalist in the Best Wedding Venue​ and Best New or Refurbished Venue​ categories in the industry recognised​, London Venue Awards​.

Since opening its doors in 1937, Hackney Town Hall’s importance has grown from being the central hub for the borough’s local government to being an accessible wedding and events venue for all Londoners. Being a finalist in the ​Best Wedding Venuecategory cements the importance of the venue for clients past and present.

The Hackney Venues team understands the importance couples place on securing the right venue for their big day.

They choose Hackney Town Hall not just because of its stunning architecture and iconic art-deco interiors, but because of the confidence the team instils from the first visit right through to the day itself. Our clients are spoilt for choice when it comes to choosing a space; the heritage Committee Rooms and Council Chamber​ are popular for stand-alone ceremonies of up to 148 guests, while the grand Assembly Hall and breath-taking glass-roofed North & South Atria are perfect for ceremonies and receptions, giving couples the opportunity to hold everything all under one roof.

Boasting five beautifully restored spaces​, and being a stone’s throw away from The City and Stratford International station the venues 5​50-capacity Assembly Hall and ​400-capacity North & South atria​ have never been busier.

A repeat client for over five years, the ITV British Soap Awards team love how the spaces work well for its multi-room red carpet press event and aftershow party.
