The Community hall boasts a beautifully restored community hall. The hall sees hundreds of people every year with popular events such as Heritage Open Day, performance hall for HRH Prince Charles visit, regular classes, community events, private functions and much more.

Internal and external public, community and private sector users regularly book the hall for activities including public consultation, roadshows, heritage events, exhibitions, sports and recreation, meetings, training and much more.

The cost to book the hall is suprisingly low, at this time it's lower than any other venue of it's size. The capacity for the hall is 75 Seated and 100 standing . Prices* range from £6-£17.50 per hour for weekdays and £15-£40 for weekends. At £6 per day for Projector and OHP equipment, you can't go wrong.

As a filming location, your production will benefit from low costs during the day and at weekends, plus we're right next door to the above ground resevoir, which is regularly used for filming by the BBC and others.
