Egglescliffe Parish Hall
Frequently asked questions (FAQs)
How much does it cost to hire the hall?
We charge £15 per hour for regular hall users and £25 per hour for one off hire (parties and events). For one off hire we also ask for a refundable £25 security deposit and we allow a discretionary 30 minutes before and after your booking for time to set up and clean down.
What facilities are there at the hall?
There is the larger hall and a smaller hall with a bar area - they are linked but can be separated with the concertina screen. There is a fully kitted out kitchen (hob, oven, fridge). There is also a separate bar area – also with sink and worktop area. There is a small room at the back which is labelled as the ‘committee room’ and is generally used for overflow storage but can be a useful quiet area or place to put things you would prefer to keep out of sight. See the facilities page for further info.
How many people can we have at our event?
For fire regulations, the hall can accomodate 100 people seated or 120 people without tables/seating.
Can we have alcohol at our event?
Yes people can bring their own alcohol to your event if you hire out the hall. If you would like to sell alcohol at your event, you will need to apply for a licence. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for additional information. The latest licence time is 11pm.

How do I book the hall?

Can I look round the hall prior to booking?
Yes- we usually show people around on Monday and Wednesday evenings. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange a look round.
Can we decorate the hall for our booking?
You are welcome to decorate with bunting, balloons, etc and there are several eyes in the walls which are useful for attaching decorations to, and a suitable step ladder to get to them. On the painted walls we request blutack only, also there are plenty of pin boards which you can decorate over and thus pin things up. We do expect you to remove your decorations at the end of the function.
