The John Betjeman Centre is a lovely building steeped in history with a modern and bright extension and is available to hire 7 days a week from morning til night.

We have many different sized rooms which can cater for all events from professional one-to-one meetings to music concerts. Each room has its own unique feel and furniture can be adjusted to suit the need.

We have free parking on a first come basis, a vibrant onsite café and clean toilets with baby changing facilities. The whole building is accessible to all.

Refreshments can be purchased from the café or you can include a tea trolley onto you hire during weekday events.

All rooms can be hired on an hourly basis but all events must finish by 11pm as we are situated in a residential area.
