Pontefract Town Hall is an 18th Century architectural jewel located in the heart of the town’s ancient historic centre. Restored to its original magnificence, it offers a stunning and breathtaking venue for those seeking a dignified and practical setting for a corporate or private function.

There are two rooms available for hire. The first and slightly more intimate room is the Nelson Room, so called as it features the original plaster cast frieze used for Nelson’s column.

The second, larger, but equally dramatic room is the Assembly Hall which offers a flexible space for events as varied as business meetings and concerts. The Town Hall offers sound and light systems that makes it the ideal venue for quality stage productions and live entertainment.
