Betley Village Hall Booking Information

For Hall or meeting room bookings please contact the booking clerk Diana Woods.
Telephone booking line 07367 787545 or Email booking@betleyvillagehall.org.uk

For tennis court bookings please see the tennis club page. .

Bookings are charged at an hourly rate, we do not usually allow bookings before 8am or after midnight.

Main Hall

The main hall booking charge was held down for 2017, 2018 and 2019 but regretfully will have to be raised to cope with increased running costs. It includes use of the main hall, bar room, kitchen area with small appliances, servery area and stage with PA (deposit required), plus chairs and tables, wifi, lighting, heating and free parking for approximately 50 cars.

Because of increased costs for maintenance, cleaning and breakage the use of the cooking facilities and rental of crockery and glasses is to be charged extra. Sadly we have had some damage and items missing over the years therefore booking/damage deposits have been increased to better reflect the costs of repairs, and replacements. These must be paid in advance and are refundable after the booking in accordance with the conditions of hire.

Persons booking should specify what areas and facilities are needed because this defines what keys are needed.

Alcohol sales. If alcohol is to be sold during an event there are legal requirements (which are out of our control), usually a Temporary Event Notice will be needed from the Borough Council.

We pride ourselves on keeping the hall clean and tidy and ask that users allow time within their booking to make sure it's left clean and tidy ready for the next user by the end of the booked time. We understand that occasionally access may be needed outside the booked hours: For example caterers may prefer to deliver in advance of an event. We will always do our best to accommodate this, but it will be dependent on the needs of other users and other bookings.

The full hiring conditions can be seen here.
