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 hall users 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 accommodate 100 persons without tables. For events such as quizzes etc, we can comfortably seat 80  people all at tables. We are able to accommodate 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.

History of St. Barts. Hall

St. Barts. Hall, originally known as "The Bark Store", was given by a trust deed, to provide a venue for church and community activities. The incumbent vicar of Lostwithiel parish has the power to appoint trustees of the 1887 deed in place of deceased or retiring trustees. The PCC of the day had responsibility for maintaining St. Barts Hall.
This continued over the years, with the Hall in decline, until a more recent resurgence, when a group of people set about refurbishing the building and raising its profile as a valuable community resource, available to all.
A private trust was established to oversee the Hall and appoint Hall Manager, Bar Manager, Secretary and Treasurer.

The current trustees are:
  • Robert Moody (Effective 1st March 2013)
  • Colin Morris (Effective 1st March 2013)
  • Joy Anne Bassett (Effective 1st March 2013)
  • Reverend Paul Beynon
