Venue Testimonials

I had my wedding here in the community room, and it was amazing! The staff were lovely, so were the registrars, and we got such lovely photos outside the town hall and on the stairs. An amazing venue and really made my day special.

Amber M

Visited here for a wedding — pleasant welcome from staff and a nice venue upstairs. There was a good space for a small wedding with the bonus of a stage for performances.

Michaela P

A wonderful day was had. The architecture of the town hall was so so impressive, and a craft fire was held in the town hall, which really made the day. Colchester town centre has so much to offer.
