About the rooms and halls
Halls at Greyfriars
The Greyfriars complex has three delightful, good-sized halls available to hire, each with its own well-equipped kitchen and individual character. Each provides pleasing settings for concerts, lectures, club meetings, suppers, dances, slide-shows, wedding receptions and more.
The Activities Centre, situated beyond the library, was built in the 70s as a sports hall and is a good space for lively groups, table tennis, martial arts, discos and children’s parties.
All halls are wheelchair-accessible.
Rooms at Greyfriars
The original Georgian house offers seven rooms of varying sizes, each with its own unique character. These rooms are popular for smaller meetings, classes and counselling groups.
