  Your name, address (include postcode) and telephone number, also your email address if you are on email.

We will contact you by return. A booking confirmation will be sent to you, by email if possible.

Alcohol Licence

The Hall has its own alcohol licence. If you intend to sell alcohol at your function, or provide alcohol as an inducement (i.e. as part of the entrance price), the sale must be previously approved by the Management Committee. Please inform the Booking Secretary at the time of booking so that the appropriate arrangements can be made. You will be asked to complete an Application to sell Alcohol and forward this to the Invoice Clerk for approval.

Booking Rates are as follows:

Main Hall £15 per hour on Saturdays,
£10 per hour at all other times
Jubilee Room £8 per hour at all times
Committee Room £7 per hour at all times
Pavilion £7 per hour at all times

If more than one room is hired by the same person, the rate for the second and subsequent rooms (after the most expensive) will be charged at £5 per hour

Please note that a deposit of £100 will be required in advance for any party event to cover damage or extra cleaning costs. This will be returned if the hall is left in a satisfactory condition.

Music Licences

The hall has a licence for live music but no longer has a Phonographic Licence so if you wish to play copyright music you must make your own arrangements with the Performing Rights Society or obtain non-copyright music from easily available web sites. This restriction does not apply to private parties or religious events.

Conditions of Hire

Please be aware of the Conditions of Hire when hiring the hall.
