Hall Hire

St Laurence’s Church Hall

The Space

We have a large hall, an enclosed garden, a fully equipped kitchen, a small lounge and toilets.  In the hall there are 90 blue stacking chairs, 12 large trestle tables and 10 small stacking bistro tables which are available if desired. There are also several smaller children’s tables and chairs. There is an adjacent car park which comfortably fits 30 cars.

Costs

Hours 1-2: £20 per hour (minimum booking of 2 hours)
Hours 3+: £15 for each additional hour.

For example: A 3-hour booking from 10am-1pm will cost £55

In order to keep our charges low, we accept bookings on a self-managed basis: hall users will need to setup any furniture for their own booking at the start of each session and clear up again at the end.

Availability for Parties and One-Off bookings

The hall is available for one-off users for parties and celebration on Saturdays from 8am-8pm. We no longer offer hiring facilities for parties or events beyond 8pm in consideration of our neighbours.

  3. Payment must be made via Debit/Card via our online booking platform at the time of booking, or via BACS bank transfer by request. Regular bookings will be provided with a set of hall access keys for a deposit charge of £30.
