The Main Hall
This is an area of some 4.3m (14ft) wide and 16m (52ft) long – a welcoming, flexible space suitable for a wide range of events and activities. The lighting has been designed to give clear, bright light when required with independent uplighters on dimmer control for a more subtle effect. A wall-mounted digital projector and screen may be hired at an added cost, if required.
Capacity: 70 Theatre Style, 54 Formal Dinner. For party bookings, the maximum number must not exceed 50.
The Small Hall
This room measures 4.2m (13.5ft) wide and 6m (19.5ft) long. Facing south and having windows to three sides, it catches the sun throughout the day. This room presents a more intimate atmosphere – ideal for small gatherings or meetings. As with the main hall, the lighting here is flexible to suit the mood.
Capacity: 21 Theatre Style, 16 Formal Dinner. For party bookings, the maximum number must not exceed 20.
Both halls are centrally heated and have traditionally polished wooden floors. There are ample power points. Tables, chairs and high-chairs are available as required.
The modern, up-to-date and well-equipped kitchen is situated between the two halls, with a separate hatch to each hall. There is a dual-fuel, double oven cooker, a commercial dishwasher, a hot cupboard, a microwave oven and a large fridge- freezer to accommodate catering arrangements.
Both halls are centrally heated and have traditionally polished, wooden floors. Furniture (tables and chairs etc) is provided to suit users’ needs. There are three modern toilets, including facilities for the disabled. A baby changing unit is also provided, as well as a shower. The main hall is fitted with an induction loop for the deaf/hard of hearing. All parts of the building are fitted with smoke detectors and for this reason we regret that we cannot allow the use of smoke or bubble-blowing equipment. All parts of the building, including the surrounding area, can be readily accessed by wheelchair users. Village Hall users also have access, (although not exclusive) to the adjoining community field that provides a large grassy area for a variety of activities and includes a range of children’s play equipment. Please note that this is a public area and is not for the exclusive use by a hirer of the hall. Should you wish to have a Bouncy castle or other inflatable item, please contact the Chair of Offchurch Parish Council, Stephen Palmer on 01926 421600 or firstname.lastname@example.org to seek permission.
There is a well-lit car park on the side North side of the building for 15 cars plus one disabled space. A low gate is available to close off the path by the side of the hall between the car park and the field to prevent small children from leaving the play area and getting through to the car park.
