Our iconic Hall located in the Rose Lipman Building has been used by artists to practice their craft since it was built in the 1960’s. The Hall is still used to showcase the arts and is also available for hire as an event space for parties, corporate events, receptions, filming and much more. The large open space lends itself to large gatherings, and chairs and trestle tables, a PA system, and stage lighting are available. We also have a kitchen onsite for the use of our guests.

Prices start at £40 an hour for local residents

* We programme arts led events throughout the year, all of which are community/public facing

* We keep 30% of the days each year free for bookings from the De Beauvor Estate

* 16% of the available days are used by our resident charity.
We welcome enquiries from local residents with ideas for community led events and projects.
