The Venue

Downham Market’s striking Town Hall was constructed as a memento of Queen Victoria’s Golden Jubilee in 1887. ​In 2008 the building was put into the care of the Town Council and so it remains today.

The Town Hall is a place for the people of the town and area to meet, and to arrange and attend a wide variety of functions and events.  Every week local groups, business organisations and individuals hire rooms in the Town Hall, and take advantage of it’s location in the centre of town. 


Please note that there is no parking directly outside the

Town Hall on market days.  Please ask the office for details of alternative parking opportunities.

There are three main rooms in the Town Hall all available for hire at very reasonable rates for all sorts of events - wedding ceremonies and receptions, theatrical performances, public meetings, book and craft markets, art exhibitions, quizzes and dinner/dances to name a few.
