Venues for Hire

Finding a venue to hold your event

Abingdon is blessed with a large number of halls and rooms which can be hired for community use. There are historic buildings, community halls and school premises offering a wide variety of accommodation.


The town has held functions and receptions here for centuries and now that sense of history is combined with brand new catering and hospitality services. A prime venue for marriage and partnership ceremonies, Town Council have added to the building to allow for the cinema and entertainment as well as private meetings and community events. Call in during any afternoon or evening when the cinema is open using the Abbey Close entrance OX14 3JD (park in one of the civic car parks two-hour free period with a displayed ticket) or look at the Guildhall and Cinema tabs on the home page and book an appointment to view the rooms. There are lots of photos and what's on information on their social media as well. The Town Clerk's office no longer takes the booking enquiries.

Abbey Buildings

The Abbey Buildings offer a number of rooms of various sizes, including a small theatre, all being part of the domestic and business buildings of the medieval Abbey. For more information go to the Friends of Abingdon (Abbey buildings Trust) website here

County Hall Museum

Rooms are not available for general hire here but birthday parties and some club meetings can be booked into the MouseHole with coffee, a simple lunch or tasty afternoon tea. Art, history and subjects which fit the general purpose of the building any ideas can be discussed with the Manager or any member of staff Tuesday to Sunday.
