The Shire Hall is a multi-functional building used for community hires such as parties, wedding receptions and fund-raising events. It is also used as an arts centre with live music, theatre, comedy and cinema.


Uniquely situated in the heart of this picturesque and historic market town, Howden Shire Hall has become the venue of choice for party organisers wanting to create their own bespoke and highly personal wedding or celebration.

Hiring Howden Shire Hall needn’t be just for the day of your wedding or party. Dependent on the package you book, you’re offered exclusive use of the whole venue from Friday lunchtime to midday Sunday so you don’t feel rushed to get everything organised and in place on the day. The Hall is kept clear and unfussy, providing a blank canvas upon which you can create a setting that’s just right for you.

From our entry level ‘Diamond’ package to the full ‘Platinum’ package, you can select the level of exclusivity, service and support you require.

Please contact the Howden Shire Hall office to arrange a FREE tour and consultation.  We’ll talk to you about your requirements, explain our various packages and recommend local and trusted suppliers.
