Hall and rooms for hire
The Institute has a range of facilities available for hire by groups and individuals. If you would like to make a booking please fill in the online booking form. You can check availability on the calendar.
The large hall can be used in it’s entirety for gatherings or events, or partitioned to give a space which is still big enough for groups and meetings.
The Kitchen and Cafe
The Café is open at certain times during the week and if you are hiring the hall in these times you will be able to purchase refreshments from the Cafe. Alternatively, if access to the kitchen is required for your booking, this can be arranged provided the kitchen is available. Please state on the booking form if use of the kitchen is required.
Office Space: Internet access
If you need occasional office space with internet access you can make use of the quiet room upstairs. This access is only available when the Tea Room is open.
Please contact for further information.
