Are there any restrictions when planning our decorations?

We try to be as accommodating as we can when it comes to decorating. Let us know your ideas and we will do everything we can to try and make it possible! We do not allow glitter or small confetti that can get stuck in the floor boards. All candles/open flames must be enclosed in sturdy glass vessels. Being a historic building, nothing can be nailed into the walls and we have to be mindful of using other items for hanging decorations that may cause harm to the building. Feel free to ask the Assembly Hall manager if you have any questions or concerns.
