Nottingham Council House

Nottingham City Centre

Nottingham Council House has been the setting for many splendid public occasions and is now available to hire for your special occasions. It takes a building of some distinction to stand out in a city as rich in beautiful and interesting architecture as Nottingham, and the Council House, which stands proudly in the heart of the city centre, does not disappoint.

Far from being a museum, The Council House is a vital, living part of the city. This magnificent neo-Baroque building, whose 200ft high dome dominates the city skyline, has been the heart of the city centre for 80 years and a source of pride for the people of Nottingham. On a still day, the chimes from the Council House clock, known as Little John, can be heard for miles around.

It has been the setting for many splendid public occasions. Royalty, statesmen and women and people from the world of showbusiness have been received and entertained here. The FA and European cups have been held aloft from its balcony, and a great many worthy organisations and individuals have received the thanks of a grateful city within its walls.

The imposing exterior of The Council House is complemented by a sumptuous, sometimes opulent interior. The first impression, as you enter the foyer through bronze doors, sets the tone with the staircase, columns and floors crafted from the finest Italian marble. Inlaid in the floor is a mosaic of the city’s coat of arms.

There are two main rooms for hire; The Ballroom and The Dining Room. Events that can be hosted at the Council house include:

Corporate and private business dinners and lunches

Awards evenings

Seminars and conferences

Product launches

Weddings and Civil Partnerships

Memorial receptions

Wedding Receptions
