The Great Hall offers you all the versatility you could wish for. Its 338m2 floor space makes our spectacular hall ideal for all large events – receptions, conferences, awards ceremonies and weddings to name but a few.


The soaring 13-metre-high ceiling ensures that even at its full capacity, guests never feel cramped. Magnificent 3-metre-tall windows flood the hall with natural light by day and those from the King’s Gallery can be backlit by night.

Drama and Interest

The organ gallery is accessible for AV crews, theming and photography. Adjoining rooms and spaces such as the Cloisters, the Parlour and the Courtyard Garden allow you to plan the sequence of your event, adding drama and interest. Access doors from each end of the hall and a generous dais provide excellent presentation opportunities.

A Most Adaptable Space

Our Event Team is well-practised at helping organisers translate their fantastically creative ideas into a workable solution in our Great Hall. There’s little we can’t do with our most adaptable space and our team loves the challenge new ideas bring – even if you want to incorporate a full theatrical performance complete with table dancers and a Norwegian marching band into your dinner!

Dedicated Event Coordinator

Once you’ve booked your event with us, your dedicated event coordinator will be there to take you through every step of the journey, from conception to execution, taking away the stress and nitty gritty of the logistics so you can concentrate on the big picture.
