Shirley House

The building is a grand Victorian house with large windows suitable for a variety of uses.  The substantial nature of the building provides good sound isolation between rooms enabling them to be occupied simultaneously without disturbance to other users. There are two ground floor rooms and one first floor room available for hire. There are also kitchen facilities by arrangement. There is disabled access to all areas.

Room 1 is a large rectangular room (14m x 5.5m) with a maximum seating capacity of 75. The floor is varnished and there are curtains to all windows. The room offers a good space for meetings, musical recitals, dance, children's parties and much more. There is access to toilets, disabled toilets and kitchen facilities, all on the same floor. The room has been recently redecorated (May 2020) - the picture was taken before this.


Room 3 is an ideal meeting room (6m x 4.4m) with a seating capacity of 30. The room is carpeted with large curtained windows and is a great space for meetings, lectures and informal gatherings. Like Room 1, there is access to toilets, disabled toilets and kitchen facilities, all on the same floor.


The upstairs room is also an ideal meeting room (5.5m x 5m) with a seating capacity of 30.



Both the church and rooms in Shirley House are generally hired out by sessions from Monday to Saturday (rooms in Shirley House can also be hired on Sunday).  The session times are:
