There is a free preparation time of half an hour for all standard bookings.
No charge will be made for the first hour of preparation time for special functions (i.e. weddings, discos etc.) when paying the dances & parties rate.
All bookings must be paid for in full in advance, unless the booking is made over 6 months in advance in which case 25% must be paid as a deposit.
A damage deposit will be required for special functions:
– £200 for dances or parties
– £50 for a children’s party (no longer than 2 hours)
Deposits are required to cover costs in case of damage, extra cleaning required, additional staff cover, waste removal or cancellations, but will otherwise be fully refunded.
Solus Booking (not applicable to Hall bookings):
Where a booking is the only one in the Centre at any time, there will be a minimum charge of £30 for the first hour. Subsequent hours will be at the normal rate (does not apply to Hall bookings of at least 1.5 hours).
If another booking is subsequently made in the Centre at the same time, the charge will revert to the standard rate.
Once you have been regularly hiring for 6 months (monthly meets) or 3 months (weekly meets) you can pay a one-off affiliation fee of £60 that will then entitle you to lower room hire rates for all rooms.
A 3-month booking gap will close the affiliation.
