WEST YORKSHIRE, ENGLAND, January 11, 2013 /24-7PressRelease/ -- For large events and functions requiring hall hire, Leeds in West Yorkshire presents a number of architecturally stunning city centre locations with both historical presence and comfortable modern facilities.
Hire Civic Hall, Leeds
The civic hall is a town or city's main public building, and is not only the hub of local administration, but is also usually the grandest building, with recreational facilities set up for banquets, awards ceremonies and public celebration events. Events managers looking for grandeur and presence often choose to hire civic hall. Leeds has an exquisite civic hall that is centrally located, overlooking Millennium Square.
Leeds Civic Hall was officially opened in 1933 by ruling monarch at the time, King George V, and now accommodates the Lord Mayor, City Treasurer and City Council. Two gold owls (the symbol of Leeds) guard the entrance, which is fronted by large roman columns. The grandeur continues within, as the building opens out into several great rooms, including the lavish Lord Mayor's room, which is lined with English walnut and Algerian marble.
Suitable for all kinds of events, from small private dinners, to ceremonies with up to 220 guests, the civic hall is Leeds' most prestigious events venue. But those wanting to hire it for private functions may be disappointed to learn that events can be held in Leeds Civic Hall by invitation only.
Hire Leeds Town Hall
Leeds Town Hall is the most prominent landmark building in the city, situated right in the centre on the Headrow, overlooking Victoria Gardens and Leeds Art Gallery. With its magnificent Classical Baroque-style Victorian architecture, it is one of the city's biggest and most inspiring venues, offering historical presence alongside modern conferencing facilities and events space.
There are 12 rooms available at Leeds Town Hall, including a 1200-capacity theatre - the exquisitely decorated Victoria Hall - and a 40-seater boardroom. With an onsite registry office and numerous meeting rooms and break out areas, the town hall is an ideal backdrop for corporate, private and wedding functions.
