Sutton Coldfield Town Hall
Welcome to Sutton Coldfield Town Hall
First completed in 1865 as a hotel for the Victorian visitors of Sutton Park arriving from the adjacent train station, the iconic Sutton Coldfield Town Hall is the most recognisable, and arguably, most loved building in The Royal Town.
The impressive Edwardian halls added in 1905 are the rooms still used today, retaining their historical versatility and continuing to serve the community. Re-focussed for the 21st Century, the venue now hosts a vast spectrum of events from a variety of special occasions through to full theatre productions.
Here at The Town Hall, we can help you to bring your wedding dreams into reality, spanning from traditional, to vintage-inspired ceremonies, a quirky theatrical experience to a modern reception. The grand and elegant interior brings classic glamour and gravitas to any style of wedding.
Four main multi-purpose rooms including an ornate ceremony room and large ballroom, complete with a sprung maple dance floor, can be tailored entirely to you and your needs. With additional dressing rooms, and exclusive full venue hire also available, Sutton Coldfield Town Hall gives you the ideal blank canvas to create your perfect day.
There is no better place with the beautiful backdrop of Sutton Park just a stone’s throw away for dramatic outdoor photos. Alternatively, the history and grandeur of our theatre ballroom and ceremonial rooms are a beautiful indoor setting.
