The Main Hall is an excellent open space for any event. At the rear of the hall, french windows open up on to a veranda which gives excellent views over the cricket pitch, recreation ground and wider village. The Hall is fully licensed for events, and free internet and wi-fi access are available to hirers. A hearing loop system is in place. The Main Hall is 18 metres by 9 metres and will accommodate up to 150 people standing, 120 seated theatre-style or 100 at tables.
The large conference room (5m x 5m) seats 25 people theatre-style or 16 at tables and can be accessed separately from the Main Hall. It also has an open aspect overlooking the recreation ground. This is an ideal multi-functional room for meetings, play groups and craft sessions, but can equally be used to serve a buffet-style meal at a function. The conference room has separate accessible toilets from the main hall.
The Hall has a large modern kitchen equipped to full catering standards, and a full range of glassware, crockery and cutlery is also available. Table linen is available to hire. The large serving hatch between the kitchen and Main Hall can also function as a bar.
Toilets and Changing Rooms
There are accessible toilets off the Main Hall, one of which has baby changing facilities. There are also two changing rooms with showers, and an umpire's changing room (our cricket club meets here!)
Car Parking and Access
There is free parking for 28 cars, including two disabled spaces at the front of the building. Further parking for 60+ cars is also available by prior arrangement. The Hall can be reached on foot using the paths around the village recreation ground. Vehicle access is via Watermill Lane. Arriving from Ripon, take the first road on the right (between ponds), follow the road for 400 metres, cross a small humpback bridge and turn immediately left into The Square (one-way system). The main entrance to the Hall is ahead of you. The postcode for sat-nav is HG4 3JT.
We look forward to welcoming you!
