During 2010, Launceston Town Hall underwent extensive renovation and upgrading, which has resulted in a stunning property suitable for a wide variety of uses by all the Community. This attractive, Gothic style building (dating from 1887) adjoins the Guildhall (1881), and offers two meeting rooms, plus the Guildhall itself and the Town Hall - all of which can be hired for a variety of uses from small Committee Meetings to parties and concerts. Car parking is available in the multi-storey car park adjoining the premises (free between the hours of 6pm and 9am). Launceston is well-placed being close to the A30 for ease of access and the town has a good range of shops. Accommodation is available nearby in the town or a short drive away in the beautiful Tamar Valley - an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
Getting Married in Launceston Town Hall
The Guildhall is available for civil ceremonies and further information can be obtained by telephoning Cornwall Registration Service on 0300 1234 181 or visiting their website at www.cornwall.gov.uk/registration. You can choose from a range of ceremony-only options or use the venue for both your wedding and reception or simply just for your reception and party.
This room, being larger than the two meeting rooms combined, is suitable for larger meetings (it is where Council Meetings are held). It is a magnificent, historic room which also lends itself to exhibitions and displays, formal presentations, etc. Perfect also for smaller parties and functions.
The Main Hall
The Town Hall provides plenty of room for parties, wedding receptions, balls, auctions and sales, etc. There is a stage, projector and screen (which are removed when not required), and plenty of comfortable seating and tables which can be arranged according to hirers' requirements.
There are two adjoining rooms, which are separated by a removable acoustic screen (so no sound travels between the two rooms), creating the flexibility to enable the room to cater for different numbers of people, sitting round a meeting table if required. Flipchart easel, screen for overhead projector/laptop are available. Tea and coffee making facilities are available in the kitchen, together with a fridge for chilled refreshments.
Reception and Bar Area
A lovely area where tea, coffee and drinks can be served. There is a fully equipped kitchen as well as bar area and we have a Premises Licence for the sale of alcohol. This area is also ideal for small exhibitions and displays.
Please be aware that if your use of any of our rooms includes the playing of music (whether live or recorded), you will need to have a PRS Licence and, if using recorded music, a PPL Licence in addition. Launceston Town Council can invoice you for the relevant PRS cost (see attachment below) unless you can provide us with evidence that you have your own Licence (ie a photocopy of the Licence). To find out more about these Licences, please follow the links below:
