Situated in Guildford Road East at its junction with Alexandra Road, the Hall is a modern, purpose-built complex suited to a wide range of uses. Completely refurbished in 2006, and on a site that offers up to 15 parking spaces (with additional on-road parking in the locality), it is very well used for a variety of activities such as dance, sport, music and movement for pre-schools, the U3A and for many other local groups.
Single hiring’s for one off events such as family celebrations are not catered for due to the amount of regular weekend hiring’s (Do enquire but expect to be disappointed).
The Main Hall is equipped with a PA system and a curtained stage, flexible seating (+ tables), dressing rooms, and a large mirror for dance classes and rehearsals.
In addition to the Main Hall, there are two spacious meeting rooms: the Wallis Room and the Probart Lounge, both well-suited to meetings and activities for smaller groups, with an ample supply of tables and chairs. The Wallis Room also has a small kitchenette, for the making of teas/coffees (as supplied by the hirer).
The complex is complemented by a 'professional-standard' Kitchen, capable (by using your own staff) of preparing and serving a first-class multi-course meal, or just light refreshments. It includes a cooker and a fridge-freezer which hirers can use. There is a supply of cups and saucers (other cooking utensils, crockery and cutlery must be brought by the hirer). NOTE: hirers of the Main Hall are required to also hire the Kitchen.
There is full disabled access to the building, along with a specially-adapted toilet that also includes baby-changing facilities.
