Please discuss your proposed event upon booking. Please note that we do not take bookings for teenage parties (12+) or for wedding receptions.

Capacity: The maximum number of people permitted in the building is 150. You would struggle to fit this many in though and it would mean 150 standing! We have enough chairs to seat about 90 people and we also have plenty of folding tables (long rectangular and smaller rectangular).

Booking/Payment: Once your booking has been confirmed with Gwiz and your booking form has been signed and returned, an invoice for the deposit and total balance due will be sent to you. A deposit of half the total fee is due upon booking and the remaining balance is due one week before the booking. These are payable to "Duffield Parish Hall"
