Baroque splendour for all to enjoy
The Guildhall was the civic heart of Abingdon-on-Thames in the 18th and 19th centuries. Part of the front of the building dates from 1400 and the Roysse Room was a school at the time of Mary Tudor, established in 1556. Restored to its former status since transferring back to the town council in 2010, the glorious baroque rooms are now in use for receptions and public events.
The team which runs the Abbey Cinema in the 1960s extension to The Guildhall and the Unicorn Theatre in the Abbey Buildings manages the Guildhall facility on behalf of the town council. The venue is available for bookings from corporate events to weddings and christenings. The historic building complex has a number of floor levels and access has been improved and a lift has been installed.
