How To Book

Covid-19 - please check here for Covid-19 information.

The easiest and quickest way to book is online.

Please click here to view the availability calendar and to book. You are able to have a look at availability without booking if you just want to check when the Hall is free, or what activities are on at the Hall.

If the Hall is free on the date or dates you want, follow the instructions on screen to book. Once we have received your booking we hope to confirm it within 48 hours. If you do not hear back from us after a while please contact the Booking Secretary - details below.

See the Hire Charges page for a guide to how much it will cost, normal session times (though the Hall can be booked outside these times if needed), and additional details relating to weddings, parties, etc.

If you are making a booking request for the first time, you will be asked to enter your contact details and a password so that you can track your booking status, any changes that are made, plus view any invoices and payments linked to that booking, much in the same way you would with an online shopping website.

If you would like to see around the Hall before or after booking please contact the Booking Secretary - details below and someone will be in touch to arrange a suitable time with you.

If the availability calendar is showing a booking already by a weekly activity for a date you are interested in please contact the Booking Secretary - details below, to discuss, as in some instances we might be able move a regular weekly activity to clear the date for you.

(Please note if you want to book through the evening till 23.59, the system uses a menu with preset times. Select 23.45 and edit the 45 manually to 59, or just leave it as 23.45; we will know what you mean.)
