Organise an event

Host your next event at the Legislative Assembly

The Assembly building offers two venues – the Exhibition and Reception Rooms – perfect for hosting functions, events, and conferences.

Reception Room

The Reception Room is stepped in history, once the meeting place of the Assembly's predecessor the Advisory Council. During the day, floor-to-ceiling windows bathe the space in warm natural light, and in the evenings rich blue drapes frame the room. It is the heart of functions in our parliament and is perfect for your next event.
