The town hall has facilities suitable for many types of function, including:

Civil partnerships, wedding ceremonies and wedding receptions

Weddings -
There are a number of magnificent rooms to choose from in which to hold both civil ceremonies and reception:
The Council Chamber creates an intimate setting for the ceremony with up to 40 guests, arranged in a horseshoe and banked seating. Boasting historic detailing, the oak panelled Council Chamber houses the original Mayor’s Chair and ornately carved seating dating from 1909.

The Reception Room and the Banqueting Room are beautiful oak panelled rooms, ornately decorated with plenty of natural light. These rooms can be used for both civil ceremonies and receptions.

Combine the two rooms and hire the Banqueting Suite. It offers greater flexibility for larger events. The solid oak screen dividing these rooms can be raised up to accommodate up to 180 people with space for a dance floor and bar facility.

Time to Celebrate -
The Ashton Hall was originally built as a concert hall which is evident in the great height of the ornate ceiling which has received awards for its restoration. The focal point above the stage is a magnificent pipe organ housed in the original antique oak case. With size comes flexibility and the capacity to host 600 guests or 250 dining. There is a sprung dance floor and bar facility to ensure the celebration lasts well into the night. The large stage offers endless opportunities for decoration and ensures all guests see the bride and groom say 'I do'.

The Memorial Gardens are situated beside the Town Hall providing a beautiful setting for outdoor photographs and a chance for guests to mingle.

Lancaster Town Hall takes pride in knowledge and their attention to detail.
