Ball Room at The Assembly Rooms

About this space

Bath's biggest Georgian room, perfect for larger weddings, parties, business meetings, awards dinners, conferences, receptions and exhibitions and can be used in conjunction with adjoining rooms.

The Ball Room is the largest eighteenth-century room in Bath and has often been described as the finest in the country. High columns, intricate plasterwork, and five original Whitefriars crystal chandeliers make this a spectacular space.

The high ceiling was designed with ventilation in mind; on crowded ball nights up to 1,200 guests would use the room for dancing.

Free hire of the Card Room Bar can be included with the Ball Room, with a minimum guaranteed bar spend of £360 inc VAT - please inquire for further details.

Rules of the space

Due to the historic nature of the building, some additional limitations and restrictions are in place to protect the venue - please get in touch for further details.


The Assembly Rooms is one of Bath's most prestigious venues, perfect for business events, weddings, and parties.

Each of the four rooms, the Great Octagon, Tea Room, Ball Room, and Card Room, had a specific purpose, as their names suggest, but they could all tailor for other functions, as they still do today.

Guests can move easily, behind closed doors, from room to room throughout the day and there is a small formal garden, well suited to drinks receptions.

The venue is available for exclusive hire for a full day at £5235 inc. VAT.
