Park Hall Harpenden description

Community Hall

Medium (1-150)

Managed by Harpenden Town Council, Park Hall is the ideal venue for all types of functions including wedding receptions, dinner/dances, children's parties, craft fairs, sales and exhibitions. Many clubs hold their meetings in the hall and several dance and exercise classes take place weekly. The hall is decorated annually to keep it to the highest possible standard. Located opposite Harpenden Common and adjoining Rothamsted Park it provides exceptional photographic opportunities for wedding receptions, christenings, etc.

665_IMG_4876.JPGThe main hall is 36' x 33' and can hold 180 people for a standing reception, 85 for a Dinner Dance and 155 for a seated meeting. The hall is on one level throughout making it fully accessible to wheelchair users and it also boasts a disabled toilet with baby changing facilities. We suggest you have no more than 100 guests for a disco or formal dinner. It is non-smoking throughout. The hall is licensed for entertainment but does not hold an alcohol licence (you can serve alcohol but you cannot sell it) or have a bar. Outside bars can be brought in as well as a disco or other entertainment if required.

The professionally furbished kitchen has direct access to the hall and is equipped with six gas rings, large oven, urn, freezer, fridge, warming cupboards, microwave, adequate sinks and preparation tables. There are also 80 cups, saucers and side plates, 60 beakers, 5 jugs for juice and approximately 80 knives, forks and teaspoons. The hirer must provide all other crockery, cutlery utensils and wine glasses. Portable staging is available for hire for a small fee of £20.00. This can be used for receptions, plays, etc or to raise speakers or a band. The hall has an induction loop for hearing aid users and there is also a projector and screen and a microphone available.
