The Assembly is a stunning, art-deco, multi-function venue in the heart of Leamington Spa. It opened its doors in the summer of 2008 after a multi-million pound redevelopment designed by Lawrence Llewellyn-Bowen.
Built in 1926, the venue was originally named The Bath Assembly Hall. Its Art-Deco interior, indicative of the period, was the setting for balls and dances where the Foxtrot, Waltz and Quickstep were the moves of the moment. It was later named The Palais de Danse where local dancer, Robert Creelman, was master of ceremonies and music was provided by resident players, The Jack Southern Band. During this time, the venue was known for its own dance step; The Palais Glide and the building continued to host dances throughout the 30s and 40s when it was popular with locally-based American servicemen. Renamed again in 1952 as The Embassy Ballroom (later to inspire the Embassy Days events!), it continued to hold dances and local events until it became a bingo hall. Now, after a period of closure, the 1000 capacity (or 400 seated) main hall, along with all of its original decorative and architectural features, has been meticulously renovated to reveal the original beauty of the room.
Once in the venue, there is a choice of 3 bars; the main bar area has comfortable, relaxed seating and is found beyond soundproofed doors, for those who want to escape briefly! Another bar is positioned conveniently to the rear of the main hall. With a seating area providing a view of the stage, this is the ideal spot to relax while still taking in the atmosphere. The third bar provides an intimate space from the balcony to grab a drink and watch the shows from above for the optimum view of the stage and audience.
