Intimate Events

An intimate room that can sit at least 60 people in theatre style – for occasions such as seminars or wedding ceremonies – or for 40 people around banqueting tables or in a boardroom format. And the room can be dressed to meet your needs or whims for whatever the occasion.

Super Flexible

The Park Room is a large space that can be split into two parts of differing sizes.

The small part of the room can sit at least 100 in theatre style or up to 80 in banqueting or meeting style.

While the large part of the room can sit up to at least 150 in theatre style or 120 banqueting.

Cleverly Designed

And, rather cleverly, for occasions with large numbers of people, the Town Hall’s rooms can be combined to seat up to 300 around banqueting tables and even more in theatre style. And when it comes to live music nights . . . . . . . 450 or more!

About Ramside Event Catering

Quality Events Guaranteed

We love running events for our customers. Our first desire is that you and your guests leave us having had a great time. That way you tell everybody about us and your guests come knocking on our door for us to arrange something for them. So everybody wins!

Ramside Event Catering has years of experience gained from running events throughout the North East. If you know of  a location where you want to hold a party or other event and there are no caterers or there’s the option to bring in your own catering company, we can do it all for you. From event planning, through providing and running the bars, to buffets or full banqueting, Ramside Event Catering can provide everything.

And we do it all with our normal passion for quality – guaranteed!


With a full wedding licence enabling you to actually have your marriage ceremony on the premises, with thoughtfully-provided private areas for those intimate pre-wedding moments between the bride and bridesmaids, with space for tables to seat anywhere from 30 to 300, with beautiful parkland for those all-important photographs or alfresco drinking with professional caterers and wedding organisers . . . . . Seaham Town Hall is the perfect venue for your wedding.

From 18 years to 80 – or 90, 100 or more! – Seaham’s got a great birthday party place.

Design your own party or let us help you by using our friends in the party industry who’ll decorate the Hall for your occasion, our contacts in the music sector for bands or DJs and our chefs in the kitchen who can provide you with a traditional buffet or something wild and wacky.

So if it’s a fillet-o-fish burger picnic and a Bay City Rollers tribute band you’re after, we can do it for you. But we’re more than happy to provide you with waltzing all night and a pie and peas supper.

Happy birthday!

For intimate gatherings or excitement-filled bashes, Seaham Town Hall’s a great venue for parties. Along with its late bar licence, there’s a moveable stage for discos or bands and a fabulous selection of buffets to suit all budgets. And there’s loads of space for dancing with the flexibility to set up more intimate areas separate from the festivity.  We’ve hosted engagements, anniversaries, christenings, proms, birthday parties and even funerals – often referred to as end of life celebrations.
