WHAT PEOPLE SAY
Rowan, Yoga Teacher
I have been using St Luke’s Hall now for the past 15 years and would recommend it to anyone. It's so good in so many ways. It’s quiet, clean and has a good heating system. The hall has a great upkeep and feels so neutral and you can be there without feeling like you are occupying someone else’s living space. The off road car park is a bonus and it is so central for people to get to

We hired St Luke's Church Hall for our daughter's fourth birthday party. It is a great space and we had plenty of room for 30 children and their parents with parking available. We arranged a table for the birthday tea, a present table, cake table, baby play area, face painter, party entertainer/disco area and even a selfie photo prop area and used the servery hatch and kitchen for tea and coffee and it didn't feel crammed. The kitchen had everything we needed for refreshments. Vania and Martin were really helpful with our booking and showing us the facilities in advance and the price was really good value for money. Thank you for a great party!”
