Main Hall

This bright, naturally lit, general-purpose space works well for exercise and similar groups, for adults or children. It also makes a great venue for children’s parties and other family events. The space is 11.3 * 7.3 metres (or about 37 * 24 feet) and has a suspended wooden floor. Ceiling height is at least 4 metres (around 13 feet) although there are structural bars at 3.1 metres (or about 10 feet).

The space is supported by a modern well-equipped semi-professional kitchen (cooker, dishwasher, fridges) which is connected by a large serving-hatch. Basic crockery and cutlery are available here.
