Hearing loop

We have a hearing loop in place, for people who use hearing aids.

A hearing loop is a special type of sound system for use by people with hearing aids. The hearing loop provides a magnetic, wireless signal that is picked up by the hearing aid when it is set to ‘T’ (Telecoil) setting.

Toilets

There are clean and tidy male and female toilets, both of which provide access to the back of the stage.

Car Park Area

The hall car park has capacity for approximately 8 vehicles, with two spaces directly in front of the hall allocated for disabled parking should your event need it. There is space for vans to load and unload in preparation for events and plenty of easy and free parking in Winchelsea town itself.
