  The Main Hall (15m x 9.5m) is ideal for large gatherings such as weddings, parties, concerts, conferences and presentations.  It will seat up to 154 in rows for conferences, concerts, plays, films etc. or 100 seated at tables.  The sprung wooden floor, with a nonslip surface that includes under-floor heating, provides a comfortable environment.  For those events which require subdued lighting a fully controllable lighting system is installed.   From the hall and rear patio there are panoramic views across the Bride Valley, a wonderful back drop for those cherished photos   There is a full sound system which includes the use of a projector, computer and DVD facilities. There is also a loop system for the hard of hearing.  The stage is equipped with a full lighting set.  The main hall may also be used in conjunction with the Meeting Room and Stage (8.5m x 3.75m) which also has under- floor heating and a separate entrance suitable for wheelchair access.  The Meeting Room has a seating capacity of 30, a broadband internet connection and projection facilities.  This area can be separated from the hall by use of an acoustic screen which significantly reduces noise transference.  For example a meeting could be held here whilst a sporting activity is being played in the Main Hall.  This makes the meeting room an ideal meeting or training facility for local organisations and businesses.   The kitchen is fitted out to commercial standards for the preparation and serving of food and drinks, plus dish-washing facilities. When hiring the hall the kitchen can be used free of charge to make hot and cold drinks, but full use of the kitchen will incur a charge.   Outside: The Hall faces south and from the hall and patio there are panoramic views of the Bride Valley. The four sets of french windows lead out from the main hall onto a large paved area beyond which there is an extensive area of grass. In the summer this outside area is a fine extension of the hall and its use is included with the hire of the hall.   Parking: 25 parking spaces plus 2 disabled bays.   Licences: The Hall is licensed for music, dancing, film shows and the sale of alcohol. There is full public liability insurance.   Return to Top
