To find out about availability please call our administrators in the office 9am–3pm on 01225 466606.

We have a sliding scale rather than an hourly rate, so the longer your session the less you pay. We offer discounts to community groups and small charities and there is a corporate rate for large companies and organisations. Our main hall is reserved for daytime hire by corporate rate users on Tuesdays.
