The hall is hired at a competitive hourly rate and discounts are offered for regular community group users.
Weekday rates (Mon to Fri): £20 per hour for regular community bookings. £28 for one-off or commercial bookings.
Saturday rates (not Sundays): £28 per hour for regular bookings. £38 per hour for one-off bookings or commercial use. Minimum booking times apply (see tab for details).
A refundable breakage/cleaning deposit of £100 is required at the time of booking.
For regular bookings the the minimum booking time is 1 hour.
For one-off use, the minimum booking time is 3 hours midweek and 5 hours on Saturdays (or £190).
Time needed for set up and clearing away should be included in the booking time.
