Is there a Law, or article of Corpora, that prevents an event from
being held at The Merry Rose, or is it only a tradition that events
be held at physical locations?  One sixth of Atlantia's population
meseems to be a respectable turnout for an event.

Of course, it would have to be a non-martial event.
OTOH, it could be on the royal progress.
