Hire Charges

The hire charge includes the room hire fee and use of the Hall’s tables, chairs and kitchen equipment.

A typical Saturday wedding will book exclusive use of the Hall from 6pm Friday evening and all of Saturday. The hire charge includes packing away and cleaning the hall so you can enjoy your day without worrying about cleaning afterwards. For a firm quote taking into account your specific needs, please contact the Hall Managers.

50% of the hire fee is required to secure the booking, and the balance is due four weeks prior to the event. In addition to the hire charge a refundable Security Deposit of £500 is required. This will be returned to the hirer within 28 days of the event, providing that the terms and conditions of hiring have been met. These include any damage to the Hall, loss of equipment or nuisance caused to neighbours.
