Town Hall turns up in style for wedding plans
Stornoway Town Hall is putting on its glad-rags and getting ready to welcome those who wish to celebrate their marriage in an iconic building with plenty space to dance, eat and generally have fun.
It now has its own events coordinator to assist customers with their arrangements. Mira Byrne, 31, a graduate apprentice with Comhairle nan Eilean Siar, brings a wealth of experience to the role. A fluent Gaelic speaker, she worked for several years coordinating events at Sabhal Mòr Ostaig as well as Hotel Eilean Iarmain in Skye. As part of her new role, Mira will be undertaking a post graduate qualification in Events Management with Napier University.
Mira is part of a team based in e-Sgoil on Francis Street, who are aiming to promote the Town Hall and ultimately increase its usage. There are plans to improve the existing facilities in the coming year, for instance, adding a new kitchen/food holding area for caterers. The outcome of this e-Sgoil based project is to create a self-financing events management business which will organise and promote events island-wide.
