Digby Hall

Digby Hall

The Digby Hall is situated next to the Library, in Hound Street, just off the historic and delightful town centre.

Presently the hall offers a comprehensive and excellent range of facilities at very competitive prices. Built in 1972, with an extension added in 1990, the accommodation includes a large Main Hall with a modern sound and lighting system and digital projector and screen; the Small Hall; the Wingfield Room; toilets and cloakroom; a licensed bar; a large catering kitchen and a patio area with enclosed lawn.

Adjoining the hall, is a pay and display car park with 50 spaces and directly opposite is a public car park (113 spaces). Exclusive use of all the facilities, a combination of some of them, or the hire of just one of the halls, can therefore meet the requirements of a large range of functions such as receptions, dances, concerts, stage performances, conferences, seminars, meetings, auctions, wedding receptions, specialist fairs or markets, local groups, adult education classes.
