Directions:
Located off the main road through the village, on the left when travelling towards Sidmouth (A3052) - about 100 yards past the garage, and beyond Meadow Drive located on the left. The hall is offset between the houses lining the road and is easy to miss, although it does have a sign visible from the road.

Size:
Suitable for perhaps 100 people.

Access:
Reasonably easy:
Turn in towards the hall and drive around to the left of the building, where you will find the car park located behind. Vehicle access a little tight, but easily passable with car/trailer or van.

Caretaker Issues:
None known.

Setting Up:
Due to the moderate size of the hall, the equipment is best set up on the stage provided. The stage is fairly high, with moveable steps to access from the dance floor although the equipment is best brought in through the fire exit to the rear, accessible from the car park. There are narrow steps stage-left, with hanging curtains to screen off the area.

Sound Limiter:
No.

Power Connection:
One double 13A socket provided to the rear of the stage at the top of the steps. It is probable that the power cable will have to run along near the top of the steps from this position, so be aware of possible trip hazards here.

Bar Location:
Several possible locations, although a dedicated bar/lounge is provided in a separate small room up some stairs.

Tables Available For Use:
Yes.

Fuel Stations:
None known - ensure a full tank.

Mobile Phone Signal:
Unknown.

Additional Remarks:
Nice old hall, useful layout with plenty of character. One useful feature is the provision for stage lights - a main light for setting up, and a red lamp useful as a work light during the evening.
