Is the Guildhall still open?

Due to the effects of the Covid-19 pandemic and in line with Government advice, the Guildhall is currently closed. However the team at Guildhall Winchester are doing all they can to support customers and hirers. If you have an existing booking please email


What if I want to hire a room later in the year?

Please visit to see the range of spaces available and take virtual tours of our rooms. However please note that we are currently not confirming new bookings until we have a clearer picture of what the Guildhall can re-open for.

We expect to have more details on this in September.


What if I’ve booked a ticket for an event?

Many bookings are being postponed or in some cases cancelled, and we would urge to you to check with the organiser or ticket provider before planning to travel to any event.


Is Eighteen71 café still open?

In line with Government advice, our café closed on 20th March. We are now undertaking planned essential works to welcome a new operator to the café in the near future but would like to thank all our customers for their support over the past ten years


Please email for more details.
