St Bartholomew's Church Hall
St. Barts. Hall is a venue in the centre of Lostwithiel used by many local groups and regular and special events. It is available to hire.
A modernisation plan was put in place after the last severe flood in 2010. We now have a new floor and all new electrics. we have new more efficient lighting that can be dimmed and a new user friendly heating system.
We have recently acquired a new small cinema screen which is used regularly by Lost in Film for their twice monthly showings. This is available to all our hallusers as is a new microphone and speaker system.
Within the last five years we have installed new toilets of which one of these is for disabled use. Access into the hall is good for wheelchair users and we very much welcome our disabled friends.
Our hire rates have been kept to the minimum with a view to allowing small groups who cannot otherwise afford the use of a hall.
Rectangular in shape we can accomodate 100 persons without tables. For events such as quizzes etc, we can comfortably seat 80 people all at tables. We are able to accomodate everyone from a one man show to a full house film.
A small stage 8 feet x 16 feet is available at quite short notice.
We have a full drinks and entertainments licence and can offer a bar service, with a range of Cornish beers,lagers and cider. Our wines are mainly French, Italian or South African. Soft drinks are also available, all at a reasonable price. Spirits are not available.
We also have a small modern kitchen refurbished in 2012. We do not charge for any tea or coffee making and the kitchen is included in hire costs.
