UNILAG Multipurpose Hall, Lagos

This centre is at the heart of the University of Lagos Akoka. It has a
general capacity of 5,000 guests. However, depending on the number of
guests you’re inviting, it is offered for as low as ₦350,000 to ₦450,000 for

downside is that the amount you pay is only for the hall itself including a charge
for cleaning and damages. It does not cover decorations and you will have
to sort out costs for a decorator yourself.
