At the Great Ashby Community Centre we are fortunate to have three halls. All three are different sizes, with slightly different facilities, allowing us to provide you with a space suitable for any number of different clubs, classes or events that you might like to hold here.
All three halls are on the ground floor and all have step-free access.
Halls 1 and 3 are accessed via the Main Entrance, on the right hand side of the building. Off the foyer is a disabled WC as well as separate WCs for males and females. The centre’s kitchen is located in this side of the building too.
On the left hand side of the building is Hall 2, which is accessed from the Hall 2 Entrance. Off this lobby are two unisex toilets, one of which is accessible for our disabled centre users.
Size: 16.5m x 8.75m
Capacity: 100 people (standing) or 85 people (seated conference style or around tables)
Number of tables available to use: 21 + a number of children’s tables
Hall 1 is the largest of our halls at just over 140m². It has a sprung wooden floor, making it ideal for sport, dance and exercise classes.
This hall is a popular choice for children’s parties. With its high ceiling, it is the only one of our halls large enough to accommodate bouncy castles and large inflatables and with access to the all-weather garden, the little ones can run off some energy outside too!
When hiring Hall 1, you may use our large kitchen, for no extra cost. The kitchen includes a range oven (but no hob) and fridge freezer, allowing for food to be cooked and re-heated during your hire period.
Please note that due to the high ceiling fans, helium balloons are not permitted in Hall 1.
Size: 10m x 8m plus 3.9 m x 7.6 m
Capacity: 50 people (standing or seated conference style or around tables)
Number of tables available to use: 14 + a number of children’s tables
Hall 2 is our second largest hall. Although smaller than Hall 1, it is still ideal for children’s parties that do not wish to have a bouncy castle or inflatables. It is also the only hall at the centre where we allow animals, so petting zoo/safari parties can be held here. Access to the all-weather garden is via the double doors at the back.
Within Hall 2 is a kitchenette with sink, fridge, microwave and kettle, which allows for drinks and snacks to be prepared. Food may only be re-heated in the microwave. If you wish to cook, re-heat or warm food by any other method, then Hall 1 should be hired, which includes the use of the centre’s kitchen.
Size: 6m x 7m (to be confirmed)
Capacity: Currently 35 people (seated on chairs and banquette seating)
Number of tables available to use: 7
Hall 3 is the smallest of our rooms and is available to book for meetings and smaller gatherings.
It comes with a small kitchenette which includes a fridge, kettle and sink. This allows for drinks and cold snacks to be prepared in the hall itself. If you wish to cook, re-heat or warm food, you may use our large kitchen, for no extra cost. The kitchen includes a range oven (but no hob), microwave and fridge freezer.
