The Hearth Hall is currently closed during this period of lockdown.  When restrictions are lifted, the hall will re-open for bookings with  special measures in place to ensure that those using it are confident that all risks are kept at a minimum.

In order to support our hall users, Hall Hire costs have been reduced from the previous price of £11 per hour to £8 per hour to take into account the restriction of numbers able to attend classes.  Bookings are taken by the hour, and we do not charge for setting up time or clearing up time at the end of your session.


Suitable for workshops and classes, the Hearth Hall offers an attractive space with free parking, disabled access and WC,

Wi-Fi, an overhead projector. Catering can be provided by the Hearth Café by prior arrangement.
