Leonard Hall specification
The Leonard Hall is part of an existing building (Church House) that was constructed around 1900 but has recently been fully refurbished to comply with all the latest safety and disability requirements. There are tall windows to provide plenty of natural light and ventilation and there is a dark colour wooden floor. There is level access to the Cranbrook Room and the Crèche.
Leonard Hall dimensions

- Width - 5.89 metres (19 feet).
- Length - 9.65 metres (31 feet).

Cranbrook Room access
Access from the street is via a shallow sloping path and through a set of double doors at right angles to the room with the maximum entry size of 760 mm wide x 2 metres high.
The number of people allowed in the hall depends on the use and the risk assessment carried out for the event. Please do not invite the maximum numbers to your event until we have agreed that your event will comply with safety regulations. The hall fully complies with all safety regulations regarding emergency exits and fire alarms etc.; The risk assessment will centre on how you will get people out and away from the hall in the event of an emergency. For example it may take longer to get people out in wheelchairs or prams than a youth group. We will be able to help you with this.
