Reading Town Hall is an iconic and historic venue in the heart of the town. With our grand decor, chandeliers and stained glass windows, our rooms make an idyllic setting for you and your guests to celebrate your special day.

We have three rooms which can be used for either ceremonies or receptions, depending on the size of your event. The room layout and table plan will be discussed with you in the run up to your day. Our team can assist with adding place names, favors and other items to the tables. If you wish to have a top table this can be sized to your specific requirements.

We have a selection of fixed menus designed for specific budgets or our Chef can design a bespoke menu to suit your needs. All our food is freshly prepared on site by our Chef and his team. We source food from local suppliers wherever possible, we use free range eggs and fair-trade teas and coffees.

We also have an extensive wine list for you to choose from and we can supply a range of soft drinks for your tables. A cash or tab bar can also be made available for your day.

The Town Hall is a fabulous building and we were very happy with both the Waterhouse Chamber and the Victoria Hall. Very impressive spaces. However, spaces can be impressive aesthetically but what makes the venue outstanding are the people behind it.
Quite a few people have mentioned the staff to me in a really positive way with some mentioning Claire and Dan in particular. Their comments reflected what I've already mentioned, efficient, friendly, nothing was too much trouble, you are the strengths of the venue.
Thank you for being amazing.

Angela - Wedding Reception 26th September 2022

I wanted to say a huge thank you for everything that went into our wedding on Saturday.  It was the perfect day.  

Everything ran perfectly and smoothly, and was co-ordinated amazingly. The food was amazing, everyone said how delicious it was.  I had so much to eat, and everyone else was well fed and watered which is exactly what we wanted. 

Honestly I have probably missed out a hundred amazing things about the day.  We are so happy, the day was full of memories that we will remember forever.

Thank you for all of your help with our wedding day.

We felt everything went perfectly and we couldn’t have been happier. Yourself and everyone at the town hall were a great help.
