Q - Can I have a bouncy castle or soft play?

A - I’m afraid we cannot currently allow any inflatables of any description due to insurance.  Any other form of soft play is allowed.  We are still trying to find a way to allow bouncy castles in to our building but at the moment we cannot.


Q - Can we bring our own alcohol?

A - I’m afraid our licence does not permit it.  If you would like alcohol at your event, we have a volunteer group who we can arrange to contact you on making a booking or you can chose your own outside bar provider who will need to be approved by us at least 2 weeks before your hire date.
