There are several unique spaces to choose from, including the stunning Grand Hall which can seat up to 600 guests, and the more intimate Council Chamber which seats up to 160. Creativity is at the heart of everything at Battersea Arts Centre, so the venue can provide a technical team who can produce an unrivalled light and sound experience to bring the spaces alive for you and your guests, making your special day completely unique.

The Vibe

There are bespoke options for weddings of all sizes with flexible spaces to make your wedding personal to you and your guests.

Battersea Art Centre’s breath-taking Grand Hall is steeped in history and grandeur. Beautifully restored by architects Haworth Tompkins in 2015, it is flooded with natural daylight with a stunning lattice ceiling. This incredible space is perfect for grand ceremonies, dinners and parties where you want to dance the night away.

The adjacent Octagonal Hall and bar, with its mosaic floor and stained-glass dome ceiling serves as an elegant choice for an intimate wedding ceremony or to serve welcome drinks before guests move into the Grand Hall. Alternatively, choose to be married on the opulent marble staircase at the heart of the building before taking your party to the wood-panelled Council Chamber, which has hosted countless theatre and dance performances over the years. Light and spacious, it’s perfect for couples looking for real creative flair with plenty of room for dancing.

The hire of the Council Chamber offers direct access to the Members’ Library which is transformed with a rustic pop-up bar, perfect for additional space for your individual touches.
