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.
There is an additional hire charge for use of the separate stage, extension of the existing stage or addition of steps to the existing stage.
These options are only available by separate arrangement as there are specific instructions and safety considerations.
Hirers must make appropriate provision to protect users from the risk of falling. There is no safety railing on the main stage.
Hirers are also responsible for assembling and dismantling the additional equipment.
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.
