How do I make a booking?

The office can email the necessary paperwork or you can arrange to call into the office if you prefer. A deposit secures any booking.

Do you offer discounts?

We offer a regular user rate for any bookings of 6 sessions or over.

When do I pay for the hire?

A deposit is required to confirm the booking, the remaining balance is due 14 days before your event.

What insurance do i need to hire the Hall?

The TCA have insurance covering the hall and most foreseeable events are covered by this insurance.

What time can the Barbour be booked to?

The Barbour Institute is in a residential area so we ask all our guests to be mindful of our neighbours at whatever time they leave the venue. Licencing regulations require music/entertainment to be turned off at 11pm. The hall can be booked until midnight.

Do you allow time for setting up/ clearing away after an evening event?

Let the office know if you would like to arrange this. Ordinarily this will be fine, provided we have no bookings first thing the following morning.

How and when will my security and damage deposit be returned?

We aim to refund the damage deposit within a week of your booking. We reserve the right to deduct an appropriate amount if any damage has occurred or additional cleaning is required, but we will always discuss this with you.
