All the Jubilee Hall facilities are on the same level. This makes it easy for disabled visitors and contractors. For function caterers there is direct access from a vehicle to the main kitchen.
Capacity is determined by Fire Safety considerations. The prescribed limits are:
- 260 : all standing (e.g. for a live band)
- 180 : seated in rows of fastened chairs (e.g. for a theatrical show on the stage)
- 120 : when loose chairs and/or tables are in use (e.g. for a cabaret, wedding, dinner, flea market, etc.)
For a film showing, it is not practical to put out 180 chairs as the front rows would be too close to the screen, and 150 is the comfortable limit.
Tables -The Jubilee Hall has a sufficient supply of folding tables.
Chairs - There are 114 folding chairs stored in the Hall, and further non-folding chairs in the locked shed.
'Fixed Seating' plan - When more than 120 chairs are required (e.g for a theatrical show, lecture, or film) they must all be laid out in rows, with a central aisle, and with the chairs fastened to each other. Chairs must be fixed in groups of not less than four and not more than eight (this is a mandatory Fire Safety requirement). It follows that the maximum length of a row is 8 chairs each side of the aisle.
