At one end of the event hall is a 6m x 5m raised stage rigged with top-of-the-range lighting, radio microphone equipment suitable for musical and theatre productions, plus a proscenium arch and curtains making the space ideal for small concerts and productions. There are enough chairs available in the Centre for the audience to fill the auditorium.
Just off the stage, there are also three separate dressing/changing rooms two of which are fitted with showers.
KITCHEN & BAR
A professional standard kitchen complete with two ovens (fitted with six gas hobs), a dishwasher, a glass washer, two sinks, hot water boiler, microwave, fridge, freezer and ample storage make this space perfect for a wide range of events. Adjacent to the kitchen resides 'Brett's Bar,' a fully-equipped bar with four draught beers, wine and spirits.
Situated at the front of the centre with access to the bar and kitchen at the end, the lounge is a comfortably carpeted area sized 7.5m x 5.8m with chairs and tables that can be laid as appropriate to the meeting.
The room has large viewing windows into the main hall as well as the outside of the building and is connected to the kitchen allowing meals to be served if required. A permanent ceiling mounted HD projector and screen are also available for presentations.
Well lit and temperature controlled, the lounge is used by the local Bridge club and for meetings of various clubs and societies in the area. It can be organised to accommodate everything from a public presentation to a polling station, and as a quiet refuge for parents when there is a children’s party in the main hall.

Maximum capacity seated - 50
Maximum capacity standing - 60
The lounge can be booked as a separate space depending on the size of the party.
