Rock Choir

Rock Choir

'It is a pleasure to lead Rock Choir at Tyler Hill Memorial Hall. Not only is it an ideal and low maintenance space (with plenty of toilets, ample parking, a kitchen space etc) it is also very quick and easy to heat up in the depths of Winter. We feel very looked after by the hall and its trustees’

FAQ's

I live outside the area. Can I join a Tyler Hill Club?

All the local clubs set their own rules and this aspect is outside our control. However, we are aware that most if not all, welcome new members where ever they live.

How many people does the hall seat comfortably.

This depends a little on the nature of the function. We have seated 160 at tables for a Wine an Wisdom evening. We would not recommend this number for a wedding, but 100 -120 should be reasonable.

Do you have a restrictions about the type of function the hall is to be hired for?

Yes there are restrictions. The hall committee is anxious to preserve the hall in good condition and sadly experience has shown that some types of function should be avoided. There are also some uses that are restricted by our trust deed. Our Booking secretary will explain if there is a use problem.

How late in the evening can my event finish?

The hall is close to residential property and we have to be considerate of these neighbours. Most events should terminate by 11.45pm and there is a time clock on the electricity supply to ensure that music does not go on beyond this time.

I want to spend some time decorating the hall for my event. Is this possible?

In most cases the answer to this will be yes, although additional setting up time will be subject to an additional charge.

Does the hall have a drinks/entertainment licence?

Yes it does but you will need to make clear to the booking secretary what your requirement are and obtain approval so that we can ensure the conditions of our licence are met.

Am I required to clean the hall after use?

The management committee generally expects the hall to be left in a clean and tidy condition after use. This means sweeping loose rubbish from the floor, mopping up spillages and removing food and other waste. The full details will be explained by the booking secretary and are detailed on the booking form. Sometimes arrangements can be made with the hall cleaner to help the hirer and sometimes an extension of hire can be agreed to allow this to be done the following morning.

What car parking facilities does the hall provide?

The main car park is adjacent to the hall , but the space in this is a bit limited and some hirers will need to use the overflow car park which is situated on the opposite side of the playing field. This is a firm base area which has lighting. The booking secretary will explain how to operate this.
