Coffee Shop

This bright space, with its attractive beamed and vaulted roof and numerous church-style windows, functions during the daytime as our Community Coffee Shop. At other times (generally evenings and most Sundays) it is available to hire for meetings, exhibitions, private parties or similar. The space is 12.7 * 10.3 metres (or about 42 * 34 feet) and has a suspended wooden floor.

The space is furnished with café style wooden tables and chairs which may be re-arranged as desired by the hirer.

The kitchen/servery area (cooker, dishwasher, fridges) can only be accessed by our staff/volunteers or, by agreement, other qualified professionals. Alternatively, access to the semi-professional kitchen at the rear can be arranged when required and other bookings permitting.

Access is primarily via the side (ramp) accessible entrance with a secondary (stepped) access to the front. There are easy to access male, female and disabled toilets.

Hire this space for just £32 per hour for private parties, exhibitions and similar events.

Hire this space for a reduced rate of £25 per hour for classes and community events.

Discounts on the above rates are available to Community Centre members (10%), for regular hire (10%) and single bookings of 3 hours or more (10%). Discounts are combined (additive) where applicable.

Thirty minutes of setup and cleardown time before and after any booking is given at no charge. If additional setup or cleardown time is required, this must be added to your hire period, ie. is payable. This space is hired as-is and time will need to be allowed for moving furniture to meet your requirements and for reinstating the coffee shop at the end of the booking.
