The Guildhall Bath is one of this historic city’s most spectacular events venues. Offering not only space but unrivalled beauty and magnificent Georgian architecture, this venue is frequented by royalty and celebrity alike. The Queen had her Jubliee luncheon here in 2002, and The Guildhall has since played host to a huge variety of corporate, public and private functions.
For business meetings or small conferences, the original Council Chamber is still used as the designated space for Council debate and decision making. It features fixed seating in a U- shape, with each desk boasting it’s own individual microphone. Accommodating up to 120 people, this conservative yet majestic room has a high domed ceiling, marble columns and a red leather theme for fuishings, and gives a real sense of grandeur and opulence.
Unusually, hosts at the Guildhall have the option to self-cater their event, and also to hire in exteal catering companies. Enormous commercial kitchens are in regular use here by the building’s frequent catering providers, but there is enough space and equipment here for companies to simply walk in and get cooking. Hiring staff for dinner dances, receptions and corporate events is also to be organised by the host, and this gives you an opportunity to bargain hunt for reliable agency staff at affordable prices, or to arrange your own team of specialist staff.
This venue is one that allows your imagination to run riot. While the building itself may be Grade I listed, you will find all the 21st century gadgetry needed inside to accommodate AV equipment for conferences, good quality sound for live bands or DJs, and an array of lighting options that allow you to customise your event. The Banqueting Hall is particularly impressive after dark, with soft pastel shades lighting up the domed ceiling, and gentle floor lights highlighting the beautiful plasterwork on the walls.
