Electric heating/Air conditioning and Acoustic material has been installed in the main hall and further improvements are the new electrically operated doors in the corridor and into the main hall.

Shutters will be fitted around the kitchen in the coffee shop on 19 August to make it easier to let the coffee shop area for functions when the coffee shop is not open. If you would like to hire this wonderful room do let me know.
