Main Hall
The Main Hall boasts an area of approximately 110 square metres. There are two trolleys with 19 light and easily erected tables together with 84 chairs, that hirers can set out as suits their requirements. When set out with tables and chairs, the hall will accommodate between 90 - 95 people, depending on the arrangement. For a buffet or disco, where tables are not so evident, the Hall will comfortably accommodate over 100 people. N.B. Fire Regulations allow a maximum of 120. There is a disabled toilet directly off the Main Hall that also has a baby change unit.
A first aid kit is located in the store room next to the disabled toilet. Our refurbished Ladies and Gents toilets are located to either side of the main entrance lobby.
