The Hall is extremely spacious and easily accommodates a range of events amongst which can be included: Wedding celebrations, Dances, Concerts, Plays, Art shows, Horticultural shows, Exhibitions of models, Parties (sorry, we don’t allow bouncy castles) and Book Fairs.
The variations are endless – except that we will not allow dog training or anything involving kicking or hitting a hard ball.
Fire certificate maximum numbers in the Hall – 300.
Our suggested numbers are: 300 maximum seated in rows for a concert / show / talk – 210 maximum for a dance with some tables and chairs (the more tables and chairs you put in the smaller the dance space and the smaller the number of people, too!)
The Hall Bar can be booked for events / functions in the Main Hall. There is no extra charge for this but we do need to know the times during which it is required so that bar staff can be booked to man it.
Main Stage – 10 metres wide x 5 metres deep (32’10” x 16’5”)
Access to the stage: is via the steps at the front and via steps on both sides of the back of the stage that lead from the Purple Room behind the stage.
The Hall has its own set of tables and chairs that hirers can set up in the room to suit their event. There is a sound system (microphones) that can be booked.
The Hall is ideally suited for Wedding Receptions. It provides a lot of space that can be designed to suit the requirements of the Wedding Party. We do, of course, have tables and chairs that can be used. However, the attached photos show the Hall set out with tables, chairs and table settings that have been brought in for that special day. After the Wedding Breakfast the Hall can be re-arranged for more celebrations in the evening with, for example, a group or a disco on the stage. The large car park outside makes it so much easier for guests arriving and leaving.
Main Hall Kitchen
This is used by those who use the Main Hall. It has a fridge and two gas cookers. If the cookers are to be used (e.g. for cooking food or for warming up what is brought in) then an additional charge is made to cover the cost of the gas.
If the cookers are not used then then there is no charge for boiling a kettle to make drinks or using the flat surfaces to plate up food that is brought in.
- The kitchen must always be left clean and tidy – which is the way you would wish to find it.
- Where food is being prepared by the hirer or his /her contractor they must carry appropriate insurance.
- The cookers – the tops and the ovens – must be thoroughly cleaned after use and left in the state in which you would expect to find them.
- All rubbish created by the hirer must be taken away and disposed of at home.
