The hall is in much demand for parties, sales and exhibitions and smaller weddings. Those considering the hall for a wedding venue should appreciate that as a much used community venue the committee can't guarantee that everything will be "perfect" and the hall is probably not suitable for sophisticated catering for large numbers. However for those looking for a more informal "do-it-yourself" venue at a reasonable price then the Hotel de Ville has much to offer. It is particularly suitable for live music and catering by way of a hog-roast. Anyone hiring the hall is free to arrange their own caterer but all drinks and wines (except champagne) should be purchased through the venue's own bar.
There is an adjoining licensed bar and kitchen - and for those looking for accommodation we have a flat in the building - www.oldpostofficeripley.com
For smaller parties (up to about 50) we have a superb, split-level room on the first floor featuring the original timbered ceiling and arched stained glass window.There is a bar nearby and both this room and the main hall have the benefit of air-conditioning. Disabled toilets are provided and there is a lift to the first floor.
