Hiring the Hall ...

For all occasions

Empire Hall arriving by carriage

Perfect for receptions where a traditional element is required our historic hall has recently seen several "themed" events including a tea dance and a wedding in 1940s style.

The Hall is just a short carriage ride away from lovely St Giles Church, and arrival by carriage is fine!

Everyone loves a wedding on a sunny day but we also provide a venue for all sorts of private parties throughout the year, day and evening, for children and adults. We are also available for wakes.

Whilst Hall hirers are responsible for arranging their own entertainments and catering, the Hall Committee are always available to make suggestions and help where we can.




Empire Hall Decorated for a themed wedding


The Main Hall comprises a large hall with a stage at rear and a balcony. 120 people can be seated comfortably without using the stage. (The balcony is not normally used).

The kitchen, a large lobby, and separate ladies and gents lavatories are at the rear of the main hall.

The Kennedy Room, adjacent to the entrance lobby, is normally included when the Hall is hired. It has a large hatch through to the Hall and is used as a bar for drinks and light refreshments. The Kennedy Room is not available for separate hire.

The Committee Room is also adjacent to the entrance lobby and may be hired separately for small meetings (eg up to approx 16 people). It is not available when a major event is taking place in the Main Hall.
