Venue Overview

The Banking Hall is an extremely versatile 4000 square foot of open space, ready to be transformed for any function or event. Built as a bank in 1912, the space was originally used as a show piece for Welsh wealth in the early part of the 20th century and consequently boasts an incredible Grecian design including marble walls and pillars, a glass atrium and intricate detailed wall and ceiling art.
