For over 135 years, Melbourne Town Hall has been at the heart of events which have shaped the city’s future and celebrated monumental milestones. Here, Federation was debated, Nellie Melba debuted and the Beatles greeted adoring fans. The grand interiors echo with countless celebrations, gala occasions, festivals, and commemorations – the imprints of a community life across generations.
Catering for events of 10 to 2000 people, Melbourne Town Hall offers a superb suite of function rooms and spaces. Take in the majesty of the Main Hall. Bask in the character and elegance of the Yarra and Regent Rooms. Sip a cocktail while you look out over Swanston Street from the famous Portico Balcony.
The Town Hall is managed by the City of Melbourne through venue and event caterer, EPICURE.
Main Hall’s centrepiece is one of the most beautiful pipe organs in the world; the largest in the southern hemisphere; Melbourne’s own original wood-carved Grand Organ. With a mighty stage, the Main Hall is the natural home for awe-inspiring extravaganzas, from full orchestras and choirs to multi-media product launches. Host a glittering dinner dance in an atmosphere your wedding guests will envy, and your corporate guests will admire. Or throw a cocktail party of the grandest kind and give your guests room to mingle. Even car launches are a breeze with a fully operational car lift straight into the main hall. Events held in the Main Hall live on in the echoes of Melbourne Town Hall, never to be forgotten.
Main Hall is one of Melbourne Town Hall’s most impressive and glamorous function spaces. From the grandeur of the main staircase, absorb the elegance of Melbourne’s finest auditorium as you step into the adjoining marble foyer complete with stained glass windows. Inside, take some time to relish in the breathtaking majesty of the Main Hall where soaring seventy foot ceilings are crowned with spectacular chandeliers and the magnificent 800 seat balcony sweeps around walls adorned with delicate stencilling and authentic wood-panelling.
