Ilford Town Hall

Redbridge’s Town Hall, a Grade 2 listed building, centrally located in Ilford – stands as an impressive Victorian landmark on the main shopping street. Inside are two spacious halls available to hire.

The main hall was originally the Council Chamber when the building opened in 1901. This hall has the largest capacity of all of our venues. It is a popular venue for wedding receptions, social and staged events. It’s central location and good transport links  makes it ideal for conferences, exhibitions, mini-markets, antiques fairs and market research events. The hall is licensed for Civil Ceremonies, Civil Partnerships, Vow Renewal Ceremonies and Naming Ceremonies.

The Lambourne room is the smaller space  in the Town Hall, though still large enough to host a concert or a reception with dance floor. It is ideal for pre-wedding functions, meetings and smaller exhibitions.
