Main Hall

The Main Hall was built as a Sunday School Hall in 1911. It is 11.3m long by 7.3m wide (37’ by 24’). The floor is solid wood and the lower part of the walls are bricked with glazed bricks. It has an adjacent semi-professional kitchen with a large serving-hatch opening onto the hall, the use of which can be included in the hire if required. It can be accessed through the side entrance or through the rear door. There is easy access to unisex and disabled toilets. The hall is fully accessible through either entrance. A range of tables, chairs, basic crockery and cutlery is available for use by hirers of this hall.

The hire rate for this hall is £20.00 per hour for classes, meetings and similar events. For private parties, the hire rate is £30.00 per hour which includes use of the semi-professional kitchen. An additional fee of £15 per-hire to cover the additional costs of energy and cleaning is payable if use of the cooker (oven and/or hotplates) is required. Discounts apply for members (10%), for regular hire (10%) and single bookings of 3 hours or more (10%).

Please note: when using the main hall, the doors to the corridors and side rooms must be kept closed. This is to prevent noise disturbing other centre users and neighbours and to ensure that small children don’t wander out of the hall.

The capacity of the Main Hall is:

  • 100 for theatre style seating
  • 50 for cabaret style seating
  • 40 for classroom style seating
