Newcastle City Hall opened in 1929 and is one of Newcastle's most unique and prestigious venues. Its Old World charm and stunning architecture, including sandstone walls and pillars, marble staircases, clock tower and sweeping ballroom, is reminiscent of a bygone era.
With five main function rooms including a Concert Hall, Newcastle City Hall plays host to civic receptions, community gatherings, weddings, national and international conferences, trade shows, seminars, corporate meetings, product launches and social functions.
Refurbished in 2001, Newcastle City Hall effectively combines Old World charm and affordability with state-of-the-art facilities.
Located in the heart of the City Centre, Newcastle City Hall is within close proximity to public transport, accommodation, the CBD and parking. Facilities also include wheel chair access and audio loops for the hearing impaired.
Newcastle City Hall was originally designed to house Council administration and chambers. Although today Newcastle City Hall is used for a variety of social gatherings, its use as a council chamber and place of civic reception, and community gathering still remains. This includes ceremonial occasions, citizenship ceremonies, hosting of dignitaries and community forums.
The stunning concert hall, stage and upper gallery is frequently used by a wide range of community and commercial groups as a magnificent platform for staging a choir, orchestra, play or musical.
