Hire Charges 

The charge for room hire is dependent on the type of organisation that you are:
There are 2 charging bands

  • Band A is for church organisations and charities (25% discount on band B)
  • Band B is for all other user groups
The rooms can be hired by the hour or in sessions.  
Our definition of ‘A Session’ is a morning, afternoon or evening and lasts for up to four hours. 
Off peak / weekend discounts and individual arrangements ,for events such as weddings which are all day and go on into the evening, are available.
Please contact the Centres Manager to discuss your requirements.

Typically for bookings that extend longer than 4 hours each subsequent hour is charged pro rata at the session rate
e.g Trinty main hall £71.10 Divide by 4 = 17.78 per additional hour

The Kitchen is hired separately from the hall and is only available on a session rate.  This includes use of the cooker, utensils, dish washer, cutlery and crockery.
We do not charge hirers for using the serving hatch and counter as a convenient point to serve refreshments or pre-prepared / catered food.
