Policies and Forms

This page provides all our policies and hiring forms.

IMPORTANT NOTE: these documents are all subject to change as guidance and legislation evolves. Those running ongoing events should make sure they stay up to date with changes affecting both the hall and your activities.

Please complete forms electronically if possible to minimise paper transfer: Foxit PDF is one free program that allows you to do this. But if you do need to use paper, that’s fine. Just ask if help needed. All forms must be signed either electronically or by hand.
