Astor Room

The ideal venue for community events, meeting rooms and wedding ceremonies.

Named after Lady Astor, whose election to Parliament was announced in the Guildhall in 1919, this room has a more contemporary décor. The Astor room is an idea venue for your community group or business meeting with an adjoining kitchenette, smart board, tables and seating for up to 70 people.

The Astor room can be extended by opening the partitioning doors into the Charter room creating a larger space to hire. The Astor room can also be hired in conjunction with another event where you may need an additional room for storing equipment, set up or even as a green room.

Our dedicated staff will also be happy to help with any set up you require.

Celebrate, share, love the Astor Room.
