Guildhall Winchester reopens for private hire

Guildhall Winchester is once again available to the public for private hire. The landmark building has been closed for general public use since March 2020 due to the pandemic.

From October 2020 - March 2022 the building was occupied by HM Courts and Tribunals service who were operating a Nightingale Law Court in order to tackle a backlog in court cases caused by COVID-19 restrictions.

A wide range of rooms can now be hired for various types of functions, from meetings and exhibitions to festivals. Rooms can cater from 10 up to 1000 attendees and charity rates are also available. All the information is available here: or you can call 01962 840 820.

Winchester City Council’s Strategic Director, Richard Botham said:

“Pre-pandemic the Guildhall hosted over 800 individual bookings and logged 55,000 visitors annually. We’re really pleased to see this popular building in the centre of Winchester once more hosting private hire events.”
