New Wedding Venue in Swansea at the Great Hall

This month saw the launch of our brand new weddings product at a packed out exhibition hosted by CJ Weddings Fayres at the Great Hall on our Bay Campus.

The Great Hall is Swansea’s newest wedding venue and is now available to hire for receptions and celebrations, with our first wedding reception booked in for the 1st July this year.

With its own private beach and brand new Great Hall complex offering incredible views right across Swansea Bay, the Bay Campus provides a unique new beachside wedding destination in South West Wales.

The impressive Sir Stanley Clarke Auditorium on the first floor of the building with its wood panelled mahogany walls and incredible acoustics and lighting systems provides a dramatic yet elegant backdrop for wedding breakfasts for up to 300 people and evening celebrations for hundreds of guests.

Running alongside the auditorium are two gorgeous light-filled galleries which provide the perfect space for welcome drinks and lead through to a stunning bar area which in turn opens out onto a balcony which offers incredible views right across the sweep of Swansea Bay.

The Great Hall leads directly down to a private beach area which provides the perfect canvas for those essential wedding photographs.

Mike O’Carroll, Estates & Facilities Management Business Development Officer at Swansea University said:

“We’re delighted to be able to offer the Great Hall as a new venue in Swansea for hosting wedding celebrations. The Sir Stanley Clarke Auditorium really is an incredible space; particularly for those who want to accommodate larger numbers of guests. And although the space does lend itself extremely well to larger celebrations, it also offers a huge amount of flexibility, with partition screens that can drop down and split the room in order to accommodate much more intimate occasions.

“The deep mahogany wood panelling gives the room a very dramatic feel and the technical infrastructure and acoustics are truly amazing. For those looking for a wedding venue in Swansea that is right on the beach, the Great Hall is ideal. Not only can we offer brides-to-be stunning views right across the bay from the bar and balcony area to the rear of the building, but we can also provide direct access onto our very own private beach”.
