The Town HallExplore the magic of this historic building
In the heart of the town centre
Today, our outstanding function rooms all beautifully decorated with ornate and original features such as stained glass windows, oil paintings and murals are still used for their original purpose.
However, the grandeur of the rooms prove popular for special celebrations, such as birthdays, christenings and even wakes.
