Attraction details
Owner description: Cheltenham Town Hall was built in 1902-03 in order to provide a venue for the many balls and concerts which made up the town's social calendar at the turn of the twentieth century. Until the year 1900, that role had been filled by the old Assembly Rooms in the High Street, and it was their demolition to make way for a bank that prompted the Council to build a new, and much larger Hall on a new site. The Town Hall, situated on Imperial Gardens in the centre of Cheltenham comprises of a Grand Main Hall, distinguished by its Corinthian styles columns and coved ceiling.

“A great venue for a dance”
Reviewed 23 March 2014

We attended a Modern Jive Ball - this hall is an excellent venue for such events and has a 'special' feel to it.

“Elegant Venue”
Reviewed 1 January 2014

We attended the annual Barn dance and were very taken with the attractive décor, beautifully restored in character with the period it was built. Easily accessed from the town centre

“Choir concert”
Reviewed 4 December 2013

What a lovely venue. It's a shame all the seats at on one level, especially if you get someone tall in front of you as I did.

“Sixties Gold”
Reviewed 25 November 2013 via mobile

Have been to Cheltenham Town Hall numerous times for shows and dinners and have always enjoyed myself. It is a magnificent building with the decorations well in line with the age of the building. Even worth a short visit if no shows are taking place. If you go to a show the queues for the toilets in the intervals will be long so be prepared! Drinks a little overpriced and served in plastic containers, disappointing for the type of building but expected as drinks are taken in to the shows. My latest show was on a Sunday night, Sixties Gold, which played to a sell out audience and fully enjoyed by my wife and I. Worth looking at the shows and functions coming up as appears something for everyone.
