Located at the rear of the Town Hall building, with traditional pillars lining the outer edges, bright white walls and large picturesque windows – perfect for natural light, this plain canvas is the perfect setting to decorate as you like and host your civil ceremony or wedding reception. This self contained space has a small kitchen area, its own entrance, direct access to an outdoor area for you and your guests to enjoy and private bathroom facilities.

The Arts Centre

Our award winning Arts Centre still holds the basic shape of the original chapel, with a ground floor space, clear and simple glazing and a gallery. Unique cast iron columns line the room, with adaptable staging, and a professional sound and lighting system, our Arts Centre is one of the most flexible wedding venues in North Yorkshire.

Our impressive main hall is fully adaptable for any of your needs, with a small stage located in the alcove area and a private dressing room, it makes an excellent location for your very special day.
