Available to hire Monday to Saturday 8.00-2100 for clubs, meetings, classes etc. but not for parties, electronically amplified musical performances, dances etc. other than for children' birthday parties (under 12). St Augustine's Hall was built in 1915 alongside the beautiful medieval church of St Augustine's to bring together under one roof the local parochial church council's various community rooms. The Hall is still in the care of the local Church of England congregation who use it for worship on Sundays. At other times it is hireable 0900-2100 depending on availability. Please note that the Hall is normally closed for hire during Easter Week (between Palm Sunday and Easter Bank Holiday Monday) and over Christmas in the week before 25 December.
The Hall offers a modern, carpeted, centrally heated and comfortably furnished venue with a range of lighting (dimmer up-lights, florescent, LED spots) in a long, rectangular, village-hall type setting. The maximum capacity is 60, though the Hall is also suitable for smaller groups. There is a fully equipped kitchen and two toilets, one wheel-chair adapted. A portable ramp is available for access through the main double doors. There is a paved and grassed area at the front of the Hall that may be used, though access to it cannot be exclusive to the hirer as the space is crossed by a footpath used by local residents. Please note the Hall is not directly accessible by motor vehicle and there is no car park. Time-limited (2-hour) visitor parking spaces may be found on nearby streets (e.g. Sussex Street & in the Leonards Street car park) and there are nearby commercial pay & display car parks behind Anglia Square, in Edward Street and at the end of Chatham Street off Sussex Street.
The current hire rate is £16.50 for one hour, £30 for two hours and £12 for each subsequent hour of that day's hire.
The Hall may be also be booked for children’s birthday parties (for children aged 12 and younger only), for which there is a fixed fee of £50 payable in advance for a maximum of 4 hours, including set-up and clear away times. A returnable deposit of £10 is also required in case of any damage or if any extra cleaning is necessary. You are advised to read the Hall's terms & conditions before hiring.
