We have a spacious main hall and an interconnecting smaller hall that converts into a very large hall space, a working stage with back stage area and a fully stocked kitchen. These may all be hired for a morning, afternoon or evening session, together or separately.
We are as flexible as possible to encourage everyone to use the facilities as they wish for community and personal events. Our rates vary according to the different needs and circumstances of our hirers. For details of charges see our prices & booking page.
There is ample free parking just a walk away from the hall in Filston Car Park and parking is also available outside the hall. The building has a good ramped entrance with railings. Accessible double doors open directly into the large lobby and again into the hall.
The main hall is very light and spacious with a beautiful hardwood floor and is regularly used for different sorts of events. It has a large well-equipped stage regularly used by our resident drama company for performances and rehearsals. It is very suitable for events such as wedding receptions, parties, live bands and shows, social events, concerts, etc. Maximum capacity is 120 persons for general use and 90 persons for a seated meal or sit-at-table function.
The hall links to the adjoining smaller hall by sliding doors so the two spaces are easily used together if required. The small hall is linked to the kitchen by a door and serving hatch so these three spaces may easily be used together for any event with involves servicing with food or drink or needs a separate eating space. The toilets are easily accessed through the back of the smaller hall.
The kitchen can be easily used in conjunction with the hall and is regularly used as a café style venue. This area is not only large but well equipped, with a multi-ring cooker, double oven, “keep warm” facilities, refrigerator, 2 sinks, extensive work surfaces and on-demand boiling water. Cupboards are stocked with a basic range of glasses, cutlery and crockery for use as required.
The electronic serving hatch between the kitchen and the smaller Hall makes it easy to prepare and share food for those in the main hall.
