ARE THERE ANY RESTRICTIONS ON FOOD?

Food is allowed at your event, but we do not allow sauces, eg. curry, spaghetti, etc. as spillages can cause problems for our regular hirers. You are welcome to arrange a caterer to cater for your event, but you must advise them of this restriction.

WHAT ABOUT ALCOHOL?

We do not allow alcohol to be brought into the centre. Alcohol must be purchased from our bar facility. Please note that the bar cannot accept card payments at this time.

CAN I DECORATE THE HALL FOR MY EVENT?

You can hang decorations using the hooks on the wall. We ask that you do not pin or tape decorations to the painted walls because this damages the walls over time. You are welcome to set up decorative displays on the stage. Decorations should be taken with you or disposed of after your event.

CAN I HIRE A DJ OR PLAY MUSIC AT MY EVENT?

Of course. We do not provide speakers so you will need to provide your own or hire a DJ. Music must stop at 11:30 pm, and we ask that it is turned down at 10:30 pm to respect our neighbours. Please inform your DJ that we do not allow smoke machines as they trigger our fire alarm.

IS THERE ENOUGH SPACE FOR A BOUNCY CASTLE?

Our main hall ceiling is high enough to allow bouncy castles. You must hire a castle from an established hire company to ensure that the equipment is safe to use.
