The Hall

The Gorefield Community Hall is a good size for family parties and celebrations and other regular events such as classes, groups, workshops, courses and meetings.

The hall can be divided by drop down shutters or used as one space thereby creating a versatile space for multiple uses. The main hall space has a high ceiling which means inflatable activities, popular for children’s parties, are easily accommodated while the side extension and bar area provides adequate space for refreshments to be served.

The hall has been built using underfloor heating from an air source heat pump, saving energy and providing a stable internal temperature throughout the day and night regardless as to whether in use or not. The 2021 new build extension has wall mounted heating which also work as air conditioning to ensure a comfortable temperature throughout the year.
