The entrance to the main hall is through the foyer, off which are also the toilets and a cloakroom with a baby-changing unit (NB this is currently reserved for those taken ill with potential Covid-19).
The main hall is light and airy with windows along two sides and measures approximately 35′ x 50′ (1066cm x 1524cm). It has a newly renovated sprung wooden floor marked up for full-size badminton. At the far end is a large raised stage, fully equipped with curtains and stage lighting.
We have recently bought 50 new lightweight stackable chairs, and there are a further 40 foldable chairs available. There are also 28 tables with folding legs each measuring 6′ x 2.3′ (183cm x 69cm) and half a dozen smaller tables.
The official number of people allowed in the Hall are:
For dancing plus some seating at tables – 200
For all- table-seated-style events – 140
For a closely seated audience – 150, or 6 wheelchairs and attendants and 140 chairs.
PLEASE NOTE the maximum event size must not exceed 235 attendees. This number includes both those inside and outside of the hall. If your event exceeds this number of attendees please do not book the hall. If your event exceeds this maximum number you will automatically forfeit your entire deposit.
The bar sits alongside the main hall and is purpose built, housing its own sink, fridge and large plumbed-in urn for tea/coffee etc.
A first-aid box is situated in this area next to the fire exit.
VERY IMPORTANT : If you intend to sell alcohol at your event you must be in receipt of a valid licence issued by the RBWM.

The bar area leads through to the kitchen. Whilst not suitable for mass catering, the facilities include three sinks, a full-height fridge, microwave, 1000cm electric range cooker with 2 ovens, griddle, 4 hobs and separate grill, electric kettles, saucepans and oven trays etc.
The kitchen looks out over the playing fields and children’s playground.
The playground equipment is ideal for 3-8-year-olds, and there is ample seating alongside, including a picnic table. The play area is separate from the Hall so children are free to play on the equipment at any time.
There is also an all-weather Multi Use Games Area (MUGA) fitted with a five-a-side football goal, a netball/basketball hoop and a cricket wicket. There are also lines drawn for practising football and basketball. This area is suitable for children of all ages but is primarily aimed at 8-18-year-olds.
