Private Parties

Whatever your event, we can find the space for you.

Battersea Arts Centre is based in what was Battersea’s old town hall and boasts a labyrinth of quirky spaces, perfect for a party or gathering that is a little bit different from your usual pub function room or hall. Here are just a few that could host your event:
The Waiting Room
A cosy living-room style space with a fireplace and historical exhibitions on the walls. It’s situated right next to the Scratch Bar and front entrance, so couldn’t be easier to find, or to get a drink! Ideal for a small to medium informal gathering.
Capacity: Standing: 40 | Seated: 20
The Scratch Bar 
Can be hired out exclusively on Sundays, when you can also make use of our grand mosaic and marble foyer.
Capacity: Standing: 80 | Seated: 50
The Members’ Library
A light and airy space on the first floor, separated into a main space and ante room. Is ideal if you want to split activities, or make one area a cloakroom or a childrens' zone, with a bar and catering in the main space.
