The Old Court Room is located adjacent to the Grand Hall on the first floor of the mansion. Once the scene of many Dickensian court room dramas, the Old Court Room has been transformed into a light and airy function room which provides the perfect setting for smaller corporate events. Guests enter the Old Court Room through an imposing ceremonial door before taking their seats under the watchful gaze of the town's founding fathers. The elegant event space has a lovely high ceiling, period chandeliers, large Georgian windows and is hung with an impressive array of gilt framed portraits. The Old Court Room can accommodate corporate events for 50 seated theatre style. Moving to the Great Hall delegates can enjoy a welcome tea/coffee break, post-event cocktails or even take their seats for a Gala Dinner for up to 120 guests (seated at round tables).
