Live Entertainment, Private Functions and Promoter Opportunities

A grand and fabulous historic venue that has played host to all manner of dinners, dances and live performances for almost a century, and after substantial investment, has opened its doors to host special events and private hire functions once again.

Located in the South Yorkshire town of Mexborough, it is within easy travelling distance from Doncaster, Barnsley, Rotherham, Sheffield, and Leeds, with an ideal position on rail and road networks.

From fabulous celebrations such as weddings, birthdays and anniversaries, intimate family gatherings, to corporate events, the Empress Building is an ideal venue for all. Our ballroom will play host to specially organised charity functions throughout the year, and can be hired on an exclusive basis for you and your celebration.
