A village hall birthday party allows you to plan the party you want, starting with a blank canvas.
Some families book our longer-hire options and do a morning 'friends/kids' party and then an afternoon celebration with family only, which a village hall is ideal for! There are lots of entertainment companies who can help you prepare the perfect party. For instance, Abi's Entertainments can provide bouncy castle hire, inflatables hire, popcorn machines, candy-floss and slush machines.
Payment and Deposit
See our packages for the price of hire.
We are able to issue invoices and payment terms to larger organisations.
A damages deposit will be taken from you at the time of booking and is outlined on our bookings pages (£50 usually but £100 for weekend and evening hire).
Our terms and conditions outline circumstances where this may be withheld (for instance, if damage is caused).
If you're using Abi's Entertainments for bouncy castles etc we will discount your hire by £5 (use code USINGABIS when paying for your booking*) as they take care of locking up etc saving our hardworking volunteers and helpers from giving up their weekend. *This code must not be used if you are not using Abi's as we'll assume they're opening up for you when it is activated against your booking.

Accessing and Using the Hall
Function/one-off hirers will be let into the Hall at the start of their booking time by Hall staff/volunteers.
The Hall will be locked at the end of your booking time by helpers/volunteers, or you'll be left with a key.
We'll check the hall at the end and refund your deposit via the method paid.
Weekend-long hirers will be given a key set for their hire period.
Please arrive on time and be ready to leave the Hall at the end of your booked time (having returned it to a clean and tidy state).
We kindly ask that you leave the Hall in the clean and tidy condition that you found it.
One standard sized black rubbish bag can be placed in our external black bin, any rubbish beyond that must be taken away with you (bags beyond this will be charged from your deposit at £5 per bag). Glass may be sorted and placed in the main green recycling bin but we do not take any cardboard recycling because of the sheer volume hirers have left in the past. Bretby Civic Amenity site is close by in Newhall and usually closes at 6pm, convenient if you have more rubbish.
Please allow time in your booking period for cleaning up.
What's Included with Hire
