The Hearth Hall is currently open and available for bookings.  The Trustees are managing ‘opening up’ after the COVID lockdowns in a careful manner and in line with Government guidance.


In order to support all our hall users, Hall Hire costs have a standard rate of £11 per hour. Bookings can be made by the hour. Whilst we have a contract with a brilliant firm of contract cleaners for all general cleaning across the site, we do expect Hall hirers to clean surfaces before and after using the facilities to ensure best COVID practices are in place.


The Hearth Hall is suitable for workshops and classes, as well as private functions, the Hall offers an attractive space with free parking, disabled access, tea making facilities and WC, Wi-Fi, (an overhead projector is available by prior arrangement).
