    We had our reception at the Assembly Hall, it was perfect. We were looking for a place where we wouldn't have to share the venue with any other couples and where we had the flexibility of bringing in our own caterers. It was very spacious and they are very flexible with tables and layout. We were able to pretty much mould it into the perfect reception setting that we had envisioned. All the staff we dealt with were very friendly and accommodating, especially our contact, Eric.

    The Assembly Hall was the perfect venue for our wedding reception; a blend of old and new, with some cool features. Our guests thought it was beautiful, and the performance hall has wonderful acoustics for a great party. The staff are friendly, very helpful and surprisingly flexible for a City-operated establishment.
    We wanted to keep our wedding as local as possible and we are lucky to have such a cool venue right across the street from our home. We had an amazing day, and The Assembly Hall and staff were a huge part of it.
