Chelsea Old Town Hall reopens following 15-month refurbishment

The Grade II listed Chelsea Old Town Hall has reopened to the events industry, after been closed for the past 15 months as part of an extended refurbishment project.

The building is available to hire for a wide range of events, including corporate functions and exhibitions, as well as weddings and private parties. The space that has witnessed the biggest transformation is the Old Town Hall’s Cadogan Suite, which has been turned from a dark old-fashioned bar into a bright and spacious function room. Now featuring original wood flooring, as well as a charming pale blue and cream colour scheme, the room would make for a great backdrop to a drinks reception or an intimate wedding party.

The Cadogan Suite has undergone a serious transformation

Other parts of the venue have also been rejigged, with The Main Hall and Small Hall also having been restored to their former Victorian grandeur. The improvements which have been carried out include a deep clean and restoration of the marble columns, and the redecoration of the walls, ceilings and decorative mouldings. Due to Chelsea Old Town Hall’s intricate paintings and hi-spec details, all of the work was carried out by a team of specialist decorators to preserve the fabric of this historical building.

The Small Hall is well suited to medium-sized functions

Newer features which help tailor the space for events include a modernised audio visual system (including a new set of high-quality speakers), black out blinds so that images or videos can be displayed on the projector without any glare, and enhanced lighting in the Halls and surrounding areas.  

The Main Hall, the largest of the three, features a grand built-in stage, high vaulted ceilings, marble columns, a sprung wooden floor, and original oil paintings. The Small Hall and Cadogan Suite are both flooded with natural light and feature ornate fireplaces, with intricate décor and a blend of historical and contemporary features.
