A Brief Description of the Hall

The main hall is approximately 17 metres long by 9 metres wide with 4.5 metres clearance to the roof. That's large enough for a full size badmington court with space to spare. There is a licence maximum of 200 people for dance events or 130 people seated at tables, and the hall comfortably accommodates this number. The ceiling height will accommodate a medium sized bouncy castle for children's parties. The flooring is polished wood, suitable for dancing, and the hall is centrally heated (gas fired). It has adjustable lighting.

The kitchen is at the side of the hall and in February 2013 was fully remodelled and updated to a full commercial catering standard, it is accessed via the serving room which opens to the main hall through double doors mid way along the side. The kitchen is equiped with a sink, fridge, large cooker, microwave, dishwasher, water boiler, hand sanitiser and generous areas of all stainless preparation surfaces.

The serving room has outside doors, with vehicle access, allowing easy access to the kitchen or through to the main hall.

There is a side room which can be opened directly into the hall for use as a bar area. It has been recently refurbished and refitted, it has a sink and a drink bottle cooler. A movable bar allows this room to be used for serving drinks into the main hall or closed off when not needed.

In addition to the new kitchen, improvements have recently been made to other areas, with the provision of a disabled toilet facility, improved ladies toilet, and new foyer flooring. During 2016 considerable redecoration has taken place throughout the hall.

There is access to the stage through the stage door from the hall, which connects via a short corridor to the committee room and has outside access through the back door of the hall, creating a self contained backstage area for stage productions and allowing direct loading of equipment to the stage from the car park. The stage is equiped with basic lighting and a PA/sound system.

The main entrance door of the hall opens into a small foyer with cloakroom and toilets off to the left, the bar room is to the right and double doors open to the main hall. There is also a store room which opens directly to the hall containing stacking chairs and tables.
