Redbridge's Town Hall, a Grade 2 listed building, centrally located in Ilford - stands as an impressive Victorian landmark in the shopping precinct. Inside are two spacious halls available for hire: the Main Hall and the Lambourne Room.

The Main Hall was originally the Council Chamber when the building opened in 1901. This hall has the largest capacity of all the venues owned by the London Borough of Redbridge and is in regular demand for council and social activities. It is a popular venue for wedding receptions, socials and staged events. It's central location and close proximity to a range of bus routes and Ilford train station also makes it ideal for conferences, exhibitions, mini-markets, antiques fairs and market research events.

The hall has recently been featured on the 2012 Christmas Special of ITV 1's popular daytime television show Dickinson's Real Deal.

We are pleased to announce that we can now host Civil Ceremonies, Civil Partnerships, Vow Renewal Ceremonies and Naming Ceremonies in both the Main Hall and the Lambourne Room.Main Hall
