Abington Square, Northampton NN1 4AE

The Deco is an iconic building in the centre of Northampton, which opened in the 1930’s. In the 1950’s, The Deco had become very popular, and was the venue of choice in Northampton for many bands and artists.

The likes of The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, PJ Proby, The Hollies, The Searchers and Billy J Kramer. In the 70’s it was converted into a three-screen cinema complex, and in the 90’s unfortunately closed after being unable to compete with the larger cinema groups.

The Deco, which is a Grade II listed building, was sadly derelict for around 5 years until the year 2000, where the building was renovated and converted into the multipurpose venue that it is today.

The renovations and development took four years and the new and improved Deco was opened in October 2004.

There are different event spaces within The Deco, including the Auditorium (which is 7250 square feet), the Dore Suite (which is 1700 square feet) and the Glen Suite (which is 2200 square feet).

The auditorium seats up to 900 people and hosts theatre productions, music, entertainment and variety shows throughout the year.

The Deco is available for hire for events such as weddings, parties, corporate events, conferences and theatre productions and has a dedicated events team to help with planning.

If you are looking to book The Deco for an upcoming event, you will be assigned a personal coordinator who will work closely with you to meet all your requirements.

There is onsite parking so that the venue is easily accessible, along with guest facilities such as toilets and baby changing facilities. There are catering facilities too, including a bar and café with a range of hot and cold food, and a range of drinks.

For business clients, there are induction loops, projector screens, flip charts and boardrooms available, along with free WIFI and full AV links in every room.
