Stanbridge and Tilsworth Community Hall is a very modern, attractive building which opened in 2007. A very popular venue for hire, situated in a rural and picturesque location in South Bedfordshire with excellent facilities for your special event.
The village hall is fully alarmed, centrally heated and has CCTV inside and outside. An exceptional venue to hire for weddings, balls, birthday parties, christenings, anniversaries and barbeques, in addition to exercise classes and children’s activities. The hall is an ideal venue for business conferences. Adjacent to the hall there is a small children’s play area.
The building has a maximum capacity of 164 and is suitable for wheelchair access, However, up to 200 people can be accommodated with a marquee positioned outside on the patio or grass
The main hall has modern wood effect flooring measuring 65’ x 30’ and included in that area is a large stage 22’ x 10’ which is ideal for discos or bands and if required can be partially removed. There are also 2 sets of double doors leading to a large patio area.
The stainless steel kitchen is modern and spacious. The facilities include a catering size gas cooker, dishwasher, large fridge, microwave, double sink, food warmer, small boiler for tea & coffee and a very useful serving hatch. Unfortunately the hall does not provide crockery and cutlery when outside caterers are contracted by the hirer. All rubbish from your event can be disposed of in the skip situated in the car park.
There is a bar area with 2 large fridges and a table. A serving hatch opens into the main hall. Hirers can sell alcohol but will need a Temporary Events Notice (TEN) from Central Bedfordshire Council or, alternatively, you can bring your own alcohol but it is against the law to sell it on or within the premises. However, if you wish to have a licensee to run a bar for you, please contact Paul & Di on 07988 827601 for details.
The hall offers great facilities
There are 150 upholstered chairs. 15 round tables each 5ft diameter and 13 rectangular tables. The round tables seat 8 comfortably (10 max) and the rectangular tables seat 6 to 8.
The recently modernised toilet facilities include a separate disabled toilet and baby changing facilities.
There is easy access to the car park from the main road with parking space for at least 50 cars. The car park has an overhead barrier and the driveway to the hall has controlled access by means of drop down bollards. Both can be locked and unlocked as required.
The meeting room (12’ x 12’) is ideal for smaller meetings and can accommodate a maximum of 12 people. This room can be hired separately from the rest of the hall.
