Covid-19 Secure Information

****Hall Closed from 31st December 2020****

Following the Government Guidelines taking effect from 31st December 2020, we must confirm the Brownsword Hall is now closed until further notice.  Despite all efforts to keep the building Covid secure, the constraints on what is allowed are just too restrictive to remain open.

Once we are able to open again, we will be extending the special rate for all bookings of £10 per hour* (minimum 2 hours) until we can make available all our facilities available, and we will be following procedures below.

(*VAT registered business users will be charged £10+VAT per hour)

The trustees have conducted a detailed risk assessment in line with government guidance. Suitable control measures have been introduced that, if adhered to by all parties, will minimise the risks of using the Hall.

The maximum number of people the Hall can accommodate will be 30.

Unfortunately the kitchen is not available but visitors are welcome to bring their own refreshments, cups, cutlery etc which they must take with them at the end of the hire.

All furniture, tables, chairs etc have wipeable surfaces and will be disinfected by our caretaker before and after your visit. 

We are charging less than our usual fees because we recognise that not all the facilities are available at present and the capacity of the hall is reduced. We also want to encourage users to return to the Hall after many months' closure.

Below is a copy of our Frequently Asked Questions which is a comprehensive list of all the information you will need to know.

The trustees are very conscious that the Hall is a community facility and we want to get back into operation.  Your support is vital in order to make this decision financially viable, and we hope you can find a reason to hire the Hall for business or pleasure.
