Welcome to Market Bosworth Parish Hall

Hire Charges

1. All bookings of a room or rooms at the Hall must be arranged through our Bookings Secretary, Jane Farmer.  Contact her on (01455) 817255 or by email at janefarmer.stpeters@gmail.com and she will be pleased to advise on availability and to arrange the hire.

 2. Two types of hire are available.  A “casual” hire is a “one-off” booking or occasional “one-off” bookings.  If you wish to commit to a series of hires for a minimum period, you may qualify as a “regular user”.   The minimum hire period is one hour.

3. For a casual hire, a non-refundable deposit is required at the time of booking, but this also covers the first hour of the hire.  This deposit is currently £20 for a single room, with the second and subsequent hours of the hire costing £8.50 per hour.  A hire requiring additional rooms would involve further charges.  The balance (if any) of the hire charge may be paid at the same time as the deposit but must be paid at least one week prior to the day of the hire period.  These rates are correct as at 1st April 2015 but are subject to review at any time.

4. Hire charges for regular users offer a discount based on the above rates  and are subject to negotiation with the Bookings Secretary.  Regular users are expected to remit payment of hire charges on a monthly basis.

 5. Rooms available for hire are the Main Hall with adjacent kitchen; the Lounge and incorporated Servery; and a first floor Meeting Room with adjacent tea/coffee facility; or any combination of these.  The first floor is accessible by stairs or lift.  Hirers of the Main Hall may also use the stage if required, subject to prior request and provided that it is not reserved for a drama or other production.  Access to the stage does NOT include use of the stage equipment or lighting, although this may be hired by special arrangement and subject to availability.

6. The Kitchen and the Servery are each equipped with a cooker, a refrigerator, a microwave, an urn and teapots.  The Servery also has a dishwasher.  Use of these is included in the hire charge. Limited crockery is available, but it is suggested that paper plates and plastic cutlery, etc., should be used – no breakages, no washing up! 

7. Chairs and tables are available at no extra cost.  (Note: some of these are the property of the WI, who kindly make them available to users of the Hall.)  The use of these items is conditional on the user moving them from and returning them to the storage facilities, and to them remaining undamaged and unmarked (failing which, the hirer is expected to reimburse the cost of cleaning, repair or replacement).  

8. Please remember to allow in your booking for any time you may require for setting up and clearing away.  You are particularly required to vacate the hall promptly at the end of your hire period, as a further booking may follow closely. 

9. The Hall is fully licensed and a bar facility may be provided by arrangement and subject to availability.  Users wishing to consider this will be put in touch with our Licensed Officer.  It must be noted that our Bar License imposes specific limitations.

10. Storage facilities at the Hall are extremely limited.  Nevertheless it may be possible for regular users to leave items of equipment, etc. on the premises for future use, subject to prior agreement by the Management Committee.  This concession, if granted, must not be abused (for example, by adding additional items to storage beyond those agreed), and is subject to a storage levy payable in addition to the hire charge.

11. The foregoing is a summary of the hire arrangements. The attention of all hirers is drawn to the full Conditions of Hire which are issued at the time of a booking or are available on request.   

12. The Parish Hall is actively fundraising for refurbishment and development.  Any donation that hirers may wish to make in addition to the hire charges would be most gratefully received.
