Weddings and private functions
Pontefract Town Hall offers a stunning and breath-taking venue. It's perfect for those who seek a dignified and practical setting for a unique wedding.
There are two rooms available for hire.
The first and slightly more intimate room is the Nelson Room. This features the original plaster cast frieze used for Nelson’s column in Trafalgar Square.
The second, larger, but equally dramatic room is the Assembly Hall. This offers a flexible stylish space ideal for live entertainment and evening celebrations. It accommodates up to 120 guests.
