Portsmouth Guildhall, a majestic building at the heart of the city, has been managed by the Portsmouth Cultural Trust since April 2011. The building has a standing capacity of 2,228 and is known for presenting first class entertainment, conferences, weddings and events. It’s worth taking a moment to consider the fascinating history of the venue. The Guildhall is most famous today as the city’s premier entertainment & events venue, but the history of this iconic local building also shines a light on the history of the whole city – not only through the role it has played as the civic home to the Lord Mayor, but also in the very walls of the building itself. The biggest names in entertainment perform at the Guildhall and we continue to be a No. 1 venue for UK tour circuits. There are eight smaller areas available for exhibitions, lunches, presentations and seminars.
