Bolton Albert Halls is the new home of the register office for marriage ceremonies and civil partnerships.

The council’s registration service has moved from Mere Hall into the newly-refurbished Albert Halls section of the town hall.

Marriages and civil partnerships will now take place in the new venue.

Two rooms will be available on the ground floor for ceremonies: the Queen Elizabeth II room, which can accommodate around 50 people or the Prince Wales room which caters for a private ceremony for two.

The arrival of the registrars from Mere Hall means that the council will be able to offer the complete range of registration services from one central location.

The Albert Halls section of the Grade II listed Town Hall recently underwent a £6.5 million refurbishment.

Deputy Leader, Cllr Ebrahim Adia, said: “We are pleased to be able to offer a full service to register marriages and civil partnerships and provide an amazing venue to hold them in, in a central location.

“It will give people the chance to have their special ceremony inside our iconic town hall, in the beautifully refurbished Albert Halls.”

No jobs have been affected by the changes and the council is looking at other potential new uses for Mere Hall.
