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.

Once you’ve climbed the elegant, grand staircase, The Banqueting Room has enough space for 200 guests to be seated for dinner, and this room is also licensed for civil ceremonies.  An audience of up to 360 can watch loved ones tie the knot in this incredible space, under enormous 18th century chandeliers and surrounded by oate decorative features including gilding and moulded plasterwork.   It is by far the largest room in the Guildhall, and conveniently adjoins onto the beautiful Aix-en-Provence Room, which provides extra space for pre-dinner drinks reception or wedding ceremony. 

Holding 50 people standing, the Aix-en-Provence Room is often used as a bar area during a dinner dance or wedding reception. The space is also licensed for smaller wedding ceremonies, and features large original paintings from the Victoria Art Gallery’s collection. 

For something a little more intimate, The Brunswick Room can hold up to 120 people and also holds a ceremony license.  This is a much more understated room that still retains many original design features, with floor to ceiling original windows and neutral décor.  This room provides a fantastic blank canvas for themed or more unusual weddings, and being on the ground floor, this is a convenient location in terms of access for decorators and guests. 

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.
