Booking the Institute

The hall is available for private bookings.  It is an ideal venue for wedding and general parties along with other types of events.

There is a sound system with hearing loop and the building is licenced for the playing of live and recorded music.  The Committee has recently installed Wi-fi.  In early 2024 new double glazed windows were installed in the hall.  Later in the Spring solar panels and a storage system will be installed.  These works have been possible via a number of successful grant applications.

The Committee obtained planning approval for further changes – improvements to the toilets, a small meeting room, a storage space and improved entrance.  The Committee are currently seeking grants for this development..

A range of fund raising and social events are normally organised by the Committee throughout the year including the very popular Snape 10k and 5k Fun Run held in September.  The Committee also runs a 100 Club Draw, with 3 prizes per month.

Bookings for events can be made through Sarah Lowe, Bookings Secretary, on 01677 470444.  Contact Sarah to book the hall too.
