Some Basic Rules

 

  • You can’t have barbecues, fireworks, candles or any naked flames anywhere inside or outside the hall.

  • You can have a band or play music but you need to avoid excessive noise that will disturb our neighbours.

  • Evening parties have to end by 11:45pm, with music finishing by 11.30pm.

  • The hall is managed by volunteers and we can’t clean after your party so please plan enough time and people to properly clean after your event ready for the next user:

    • All floors swept and spills wiped up

    • Tables wiped and furniture returned

    • Kitchen floor (and lobby area if needed) mopped

    • All crockery and glasses washed and packed away

    • All kitchen surfaces and serving areas wiped

    • Toilets cleaned (yes!)

    • Decorations removed

    • Garden cleared

    • Rubbish and recycling taken away.

Top tips for a fun and safe party with no stress!

 

  • As early as you can, decide possible date(s) to fit your main guests and entertainers and check our availability.
  • Contact us to hold a slot if you need some time to finalise arrangements before you commit to a firm booking.
  • Come and visit to see what’s available and what you need to bring.
  • If you plan to run a bar or sell any alcohol, you must get a licence, which takes about a month.
  • Remember to pay the deposit for damage & cleaning (£300 evening/alcoholic events, £150 daytime) at least 2 weeks before your hire.
  • Collect the key – usually the day before your party.

Wedding Celebrations

 

We have a great spacefor wedding celebrations and suggest that people need at least 24 hours to set up, decorate, celebrate and clear up. We can even provide details of a local design consultant who can offer design support (also for large evening parties). 

If your event is on a Saturday afternoon and evening, you may want to hire it from Friday evening - and at latest certainly Saturday morning - to set up. It is also possible to hire time on the Sunday morning to come back to clear up. Please get in touch so that we can discuss exactly how this might work. 

Wakes

 

Our position close to Busbridge Church makes the hall suitable for funeral wakes. You can see the hall availability here and please contact us for a chat.

Teenage & Young Adult Parties

 

Sorry but we can’t host parties for teenagers or people in their 20s.

Enjoy your Party!

 

After your party you’ll need to:

  • Clean the kitchen, sweep the hall, check all toilets and clean them as needed 
  • Check all doors and windows are closed
  • Take your rubbish and recycling home. 
  • Drop the key off with us
  • If anything does get broken such as a glass, we prefer you replace it rather than we charge you for it.

We will check afterwards and assuming everything is clean and undamaged your deposit will be returned in 3-4 days.
