The Hall is available for private hire and bookings are very welcome.
Over the years, private hirings have included family celebrations, retirement and other parties, exhibitions, meetings and private dance lessons and much more.
The Hall is licensed for the performance of plays and live music. If you want to sell alcohol then you can apply for a temporary events notice from Purbeck District Council. This is a simple process and inexpensive at about £20. If you want to serve alcohol and not charge for it then no temporary events notice is necessary.
The main Hall accommodates up to 60 people at tables, seating in rows of up to 100 people, and up to 120 at a dance. Facilities available include the a projection screen, and if wanted a digital projector that connects with a laptop and DVD player. There is a public address and hearing loop system to complete the audio visual capability. A modular stage is available that may be configured in a number of different ways, as a conventional stage, as a catwalk, as three tiers (for choral or similar presentations) etc.
The hall annex contains the modern kitchen facilities and the adjoining Diamond Jubilee Room.
The Diamond Jubilee Room can be used as a reception area for the Main Hall, having a serving hatch from the kitchen, or as a separate conference/meeting room seating 20 people.
The car park has space for 12 cars and temporarily more parking on the quiet road outside the Hall. A booking form which can be downloaded is available on the link below.
