The Town Hall at Burton on Trent is central to Burton on Trent. An old building steeped in character and used primarily as the offices for East Staffordshire Borough Council. It also boasts some excellent function rooms and performance rooms, ideal for weddings, events, and other purposes.
The main hall
The Main Hall is used for many different purposes, from official council events, through to concerts or performances, and of course, Wedding Receptions. The room is large, steeped in traditional character, andseats around 300 guests. There is a balcony available to seat a further 150, but this would not be ideal for wedding guests as it simply a tiered seating area. There is a large open stage that could be used for announcements and speeches should you require it. The spring wooden floor is ideal for dancing. There is a piano on stage making it the ideal venue for a wedding pianist.
The Trent Bar
The Trent Bar opens to the side of the man hall. It is not an ideal venue on it’s own, but can be used to increase the capacity of the main hall for another 50 -80 guests.
The Dove Room
The Dove room is a smaller room with a more functional appearance, mainly used for conferences and meetings. It can however be used for Wedding Breakfasts for around 80 guests.
The Lingen Room
This is another versatile room and retains the character of the rest of the building, with large open beamed ceilings and wooden walls. It seats around 80 guests, but is more visually appealing and with more character than the Dove Room. The adjacent green room opens up to provide the bar area.
An excellent Wedding Venue
With the versatility of the rooms, Burton Town Hall can make an excellent wedding venue. The main room is very impressive for larger parties and the Lingen room or Dove Room working well for smaller wedding receptions. I’ve played Piano here many times for different events, and know the building and its acoustic well.
