For weddings the two separate halls, on different levels, can be either isolated from each other or opened out to be conjoined, offering a capacity of up to 450 for standing or 320 for seated dinning events. There is also a mezzanine floor with 68 fixed seats and a large stage fronting the main hall. There are five double doors which can be opened to provide a nice cross breeze in summer. The hall has an industrial kitchen, four separate bathrooms, disabled access, a large backstage area and rear unloading bay.
There is good access in the front of the hall from the street which is a quiet ‘No Through St.’.

Quite a few couples choose to have their wedding ceremony in the Showground.
