Celebration of Life

Organising a wake or life celebration of a loved one is very difficult and emotional task for anyone to undertake.

At Newcastle City Hall we work closely with your Funeral Director to provide a comforting and welcoming environment that can cater for up to 299 attendees. Our capacities have been determined by the Public Health (COVID-19 Restrictions on Gathering and Movement) Order (No. 7) Amendment (No. 4).

A maximum of 299 attendees will fit comfortably in the Concert Hall (utilising both the stalls and gallery), providing a formal space for the funeral service with appropriate social distancing measures in place. The Banquet Room and Hunter Room provide a relaxed and comfortable environment to share a memorable and meaningful farewell with your family and friends after the ceremony (capacity limits apply).

The professional and experienced team at Newcastle City Hall are dedicated to ensuring the memory of your loved one is honoured with respect and consideration.
