Hiring the Hall


Hire charges include: a large, light and airy hall with a stage, kitchen, cloakroom, heating and hall lighting.  Theatre lighting and control system is available for hire under a separate agreement.

We have an entertainment licence, which means live and recorded music can be played in the hall, and films can be shown. Music must be turned off by 11.45pm on Saturdays and 10.45pm every other day, and we ask people to vacate the hall quietly, out of consideration for local residents.

We also have an alcohol licence, but you may need to take out your own Temporary Event Licence with the Licensing Authority.
