The Main Hall is approximately 14.5m x 7.5m and has a capacity for around 160 people when seated theatre style or for up to 15 tables seating 6 or 8 people. It has a stage for theatre type productions and a hardwood dance floor for musical occasions. It has its own toilet facilities (including disabled) as well as direct access to the kitchen and to the small hall.
The Hall is licensed for music, dance, entertainment and performances between the hours of 8.00 to 23.30. We also hold licence for the copyrights for playing copyrighted pre-recorded music and for the showing of films. These licences have rules attached.
The Hall does not have a permanent bar licence. If you are bringing alcohol for your own consumption you do not need a licence but if you are planning to sell alcohol then you need to apply for a temporary licence from North Herts District Council. If you are hiring a mobile bar company then they will normally have their own licence or will apply for a temporary one themselves.
The small hall is usually hired together with the main hall, but since it has its own entrance (via the kitchen) plus its own toilet facilities, it is possible to hire the small hall separately. The hall is approximately 7.5m x 7.5m and has a capacity of around 40 maximum when sat theatre style. It is ideal for a small club, business or committee meeting.
The large kitchen can be accessed from each hall independently as well as from the outside and is equipped with white crockery but no glasses or cutlery. It is fitted with a large range cooker, two fridges, a kettle and microwave as well as a fitted hot water dispenser for hot drinks.
