The Main Hall and kitchen can be hired for £21 per hour or £110 for a Friday or Saturday evening session. You are allowed a free half an hour before and after the session for preparation/tidying up/cleaning etc. However, you must quote the net time on the booking form, in your email or online. For example, if your total 'attendance' were from 12:00 until 15:00, including the half hour set up and cleaning time, then you would quote 12:30 until 14:30 as the times you require. We will check that this leaves enough of a 'gap' with any other bookings on that day.
