About

Up to 150 Guests

The Alan Emmott Centre is a City-owned property and wonderfully quaint wedding venue, boasting elegant architectural which is characteristic of the early 20th century. Celebrate your big day in this beautifully-restored, 100-year-old schoolhouse that presents all the architectural grandeur of the early 1900s. The bright and airy main hall is perfect for weddings, with its window space, letting natural daylight flood in.

The distinctive old-school charm of this genuine heritage hall is ideal for creating memories of a lifetime.
