Venue Hire

Our main area (ballroom + café) at Eccles Town Hall has a maximum capacity of 220 when set out theatre style with no tables (however, this number must include all performers and ECHO volunteers staffing the event). In addition, there are 60 seats available in the balcony area with certain restrictions: no unsupervised under-14s, no food or drink, and there is no disabled access.

The ballroom area can accommodate an audience of 130 cabaret style without a dance floor and 100 cabaret style with a dance floor.  Disabled access.

We have a fully licensed bar located in a good sized room off the ballroom.

Please be sure to read our booking terms and conditions available at the bottom of this page.

Our hall is typically used for concerts, theatrical and choral productions, meetings, lectures, art displays, and dances.

Unfortunately we currently do not have the capacity to take bookings for weddings, christenings or parties.
