We are now taking bookings again. Since 19 July we no longer require compliance with our Covid Additional Conditions ( Our own COVID-19 Additional Conditions of Hire for all Hirers) but we ask that hirers read them as guidance and bear in mind the needs of their most vulnerable participants. Masks and sanitiser and instructions are still available inside the main door. Organisers of regular activities are being contacted by our Bookings Clerk to see when they wish to resume in a safe and responsible way. If you are a member of one of those community groups please contact the organiser for more information.

The Hall offers modern, purpose-built facilities with free parking. The Hall is available for hire for a wide range of community events, private functions and training seminars. We offer a large sports hall, a smaller hall and a committee room, a large kitchen and ample parking. In addition there are 4 sports changing rooms. We have free WiFi: access details on the noticeboard.

The Hall is the venue for Parish Council meetings and is grateful for their financial support - usually meetings are on the 1st Thursday of each month except August and held in public again. Click to vist http://www.sturminstermarshall-pc.gov.uk/
