    depends upon tha hall. In our village there are three halls.
    playgroup hall. basic kitchen and loos large wooden floored hall no parking costs £6.50 per hour.
    WI hall long wooden floored room, basic kitchen and loos's no parking £6.00 per hour
    Church hall. modern carpeted heated building with catering standard kitchen, loos, disabled access and car park £10 per hour.

    Yes you would need your own insurance to host a craft fair etc, but to have the halls for a provate party function the insurance of the hall would cover you.

        In that case you'd need to ask the hall caretaker whether you'd be covered. I think that it would basically come down to whether you were charging for the event ie. business event.

              Depends where it is. When I lived in a small Shropshire village it was £30 but cheaper for residents of the village but expect to pay more in bigger towns I guess. However much they can get away with I suspect - how cynical of me!!

                Not sure about the charges for doing what you're doing, but our village community centre charges £15 to hire the hall for a kids birthday party and you get in for the whole of the day unless its been booked for something else which is very rare. We are "up North" though and I suspect that prices will vary greatly depending on where abouts you are.

                      Its the community centre in Worsbrough - next to/behind Netto.

                      Not sure if thats still the price but a friend had her son's birthday party there just over 12 months ago and thats what she paid.

                        hi

                        I work at a community centre and the costs depend on who is hiring and for what.

                        Make sure you say you are a not-for-profit-organisation if you plan to make no money from it. Also maybe your local Arts Department at the council may help with some funding??

                          Halls around my area range from about £6 to £15.

                          I don't think you do have to necessarily have your own insurance. The hall I've hired for my craft fair told me their insurance covers any accidents through loose flooring, electrics, etc (to do with the building) and crafters are liable for their own Public liability insurance, to cover them if someone hurts themselves on part of their stand falling etc.

                          Obviously if you are using the hall for a workshop kind of thing, then you probably would need your own insurance to cover you for people using your tools/equipment which they could hurt themselves on (ie electric heating gun, glue gun, scissors, pliers etc)

                            Hi there,

                            I am not sure on the hall hiring but you would definiately need insurance as you have customers / members of the public coming to see you and your work and so if anything happened like an accident they could make a claim and if you arent insured then you'd have to pay out of your own pocket, you need Public Liability insurance

                            Hope that helps :-)

                              You can get community centres around Liverpool for free, depending on what you are doing...
