Detailed Description

The Royal Pavilion has been licensed for weddings/civil partnerships/renewal of vows since September 2012. The hire of the building for 3 to 4 hours for a ceremony is £1000, or to have a ceremony and hold a reception for up to 10 hours is £2500. This does not include glass hire or corkage fees. A 10% non-refundable deposit is required to secure a date. The hire cost includes the main event area in the building, the smaller artist studio, a floral arrangement and a Pier train for your guests. The building is licensed from 12.00 to 23.00, and the alcohol licence is from 12.00 to 22.00. Although the building is licensed for 200 people it is recommended that the maximum number for weddings is 120. This allows for tables, chairs, a small dance floor and a DJ.
