Guildhall blue plaque


The Guildhall is where the council holds it meetings, although it is also available to hire, primarily to community groups who can use the space for free.

The main chamber is the largest space, and the Mayor’s Parlour is also available for smaller groups. Wi-fi is available.

Private hire is available, but please contact us to check if the space is suitable for your needs and for prices.

Weddings are also held at the Guildhall, with space for up to 75 guests – please see our Weddings page for more information.

The history of The Guildhall can be traced back as far as the Stuart period. The main chamber with its curved ceiling and coat of arms was once the local court and the main body of the building, including the Mayor's Parlour, was built in 1887 on the site of the town's lock-up.
