Richmond Town Hall

The Richmond Town Hall was originally built in the Venetian Gothic Style in the 1890s. During the 1930s, when it became Richmond City Hall, the building’s façade received an Art Deco remodel.

The main hall space can accommodate up to 200 people for dinners, trivia nights, weddings and a range of other purposes. It features a parquetry dance floor, bar area, commercial kitchen and grand piano.

With folding partitions, Richmond Town Hall can be separated into three breakout spaces, suitable for conferences and smaller meetings.
