It’s quiet down here at the Hall. No pottery, no painting, no music or craft. No theatre productions that generate most of our income, no regular groups hiring the hall throughout the week. And no! No income to maintain the hall, meet the insurance, pay the caretaker and other expenses that don’t stop just because everything else does.

It’s not just the hall that’s feeling empty, it’s our bank account too. So we’re reaching out to our friends for help. Asking you to become a Friend of the Hall, by making a donation, large or small, at the link below. And help keep our doors open till we can let you back inside them again.

Booking the Hall

Due to the ongoing Coronavirus pandemic, new hall bookings are on hold until further notice.
