Hire Our Hall
We welcome those who would like to use our space for parties, meetings, training, and receptions. Our hourly rates are £13.20 for children's parties, £16 for adult parties or if you charge for attendance, and £25 for hen, stag, 18th through 21st birthday parties. Please add £5 if you would like use of child chairs, and £5 if you would like use of the Wi-fi signal; these things are owned by Holdinghands Nursery and we will pass your donation on to them. There is a refundable £100 damage deposit for the first two categories of hire, and £150 for the third subject to face-to-face discussion. There is a minimum hire charge of £66 but this is waived for residents of Rusthall.
The booking process is:
- You check availability on this page then drop an email to Enquiries@SunnysideHall.org.uk
- In return you receive an email containing our Terms of Hire and a blank Hire Agreement (also available online).

- At least 48 hours before the hire you pay the hire fee less the amount already paid as booking deposit, plus the damage deposit.
- You receive an email confirming receipt of funds and explaining the steps involved in gaining access on the hire day.

Note that Holding Hands pre-school nursery are in our hall from 8am to 4pm Monday through Friday in term time.
The hall is not available for hire between midnight and 8am.
We don't 'pencil in' dates until receipt of deposit and completed form.
We can't accept cheques although hirers may visit our bank branch to deposit their cheque in our account.
Anything sent by post takes at least a week to reach us and sometimes gets lost; hence we request all transactions to be electronic.
