Prepare to be caught under the spell of the Old Fruitmarket & City Halls as soon as you walk through its doors. Hidden from view in the city's cultural Merchant City these two adjoining spaces combine to make an ideal venue for a variety of events from concerts and exhibitions to receptions and award ceremonies.

This entrancing venue has kept all of its period charm, including its lofty vaulted roof cast iron columns and balcony and slender Victorian architecture to become one of the most sought after and unique venues in the city.
