A grand yet versatile event venue
The versatility of this grand Victorian event venue is second to none in Oxfordshire. Full of 19th Century charm and elegance, our three largest event spaces are perfect for lectures, parties, seminars, concerts, fairs, gigs or conferences. The breath-taking Main Hall is the most stunning of rooms, with a ceiling adorned with intricate mouldings, expansive stage and beautiful balconies. It really is the ideal space for large events, conferences, or lectures of up to 500 people. Our two other event rooms have slightly smaller capacities, yet are still full of character and charm: the Old Library and Assembly Room are ideal for seminars, lectures, parties or dining.
Our 10 unique meeting rooms offer a combination of boardroom, meeting room, theatre and cabaret/dining layouts with a variety of capacities alongside competitive and flexible pricing. They are perfect for smaller or more intimate functions and events. Each space is totally unique – from the Judge’s Room with its grand carved stone fireplace to the Court Room with traditional court room seating, original doc and police cells below, to the bright and airy Long Room.
Oxford Town Hall really is the ultimate event venue in Oxfordshire with the choice of 10 meeting rooms of various sizes and three function rooms with larger capacities.

“Thanks to everyone at the Town Hall for making Saturday’s party such a success. The guests’ ages spanned 8 decades, the main hall provided the perfect venue to dine, dance, to chat and celebrate.
We felt real confidence from the moment we first met you to start the planning. Your guidance as to what worked, and your tactful steering in the right direction was very good indeed. You were great to work with, thank you.”

“We hold conferences throughout the UK and in Australasia. The quality of support varies a great deal but the Oxford Town Hall Events team are always consistent in their concern to ensure that we have what we need to hold a successful event. Most particularly, their willingness to respond to issues if they arise during the day and the helpfulness of the site staff in facilitating any changes. Sukh was a real treasure in this regard this year.”
“I can’t tell you how much I have appreciated your support regarding organising our event. You and your teams are a credit to the Town Hall. Thank you does not seem adequate, but it is heartfelt.”
