Showcase event for Hackney's hidden gems of public buildings

AN open house event is being held next month to showcase Hackney's impressive array of event venues.

Happy couples on the hunt for an inspiring place to tie the knot, or throw a party, need look no further than the borough's collection of beautiful public buildings.

Historic Clissold House, Stoke Newington Town Hall, and Hackney Town Hall have all been refurbished by the Council in order to host weddings and private events.

Stoke Newington Town Hall has dark mahogany furnishings and one of Europe’s largest working mirror balls. The building hosted 141 wedding and civil ceremonies last year, following an ambitious restoration project, and 12 receptions in the impressive Assembly Hall, which accommodates up to 550 people.

Kath and Charlotte, who chose to host their civil ceremony at the venue, said: “Everybody commented on the gorgeous building and room. Every time we walk past we smile.”

Eighteenth-century mansion Clissold House boasts large ornate windows, which flood the building with natural light, and offer exceptional views across Clissold Park.

Hackney Town Hall’s beautifully restored Assembly Hall can also accommodate up to 550 people and includes an original sprung dance floor. The large main space can then be broken down into three smaller rooms, with floor-to ceiling partitions, for hosting intimate events.

West Reservoir Centre and Hackney Marshes Centre offer a more modern setting, ideal for receptions, conferences, dinners and parties. Open as a watersports, education and seminar facility during the day, West Reservoir is a former water pumping station, boasting two wooden terraces and exposed white metal pillars.

The award-winning Hackney Marshes Centre is a stone’s throw from the Olympic Park. Opened in 2011, this minimalist venue is created from a mixture of concrete and weathered steel and features indoor and outdoor event spaces that overlook 340 acres of parkland.

For those interested in finding out more about some of these venues, an open house event will be held at Clissold House, Stoke Newington Town Hall, and Hackney Town Hall on 16 February, from 10am-2pm.
