With an advanced technical capacity and AV infrastructure, it can deliver innovative events like never before.

Steeped in political and theatrical history, it is located on the first floor, through the bustling foyer and is accessible via the building’s opulent, marble staircase.
The room boasts direct access to the Members’ Library, which can be hired in conjunction with the Council Chamber.
