How much is party hire?
Hire costs £180 for the full time between 1pm & 6pm, and there is a £50 deposit fee, making the total amount payable £230. The five hours from 1pm to 6pm includes time to set up and clear down your party. Unfortunately, due to other commitments at the hall, hirers can not have access before 1pm and must vacate the hall by 6pm. You do not need to use the hall until 6pm, if you wish to finish at 5pm or earlier that is fine, but the price remains the same. The £50 you pay as a deposit will be returned to you upon successful completion of your booking as per our terms and conditions of hire.
