Community Hire

Community non-profit groups are welcome to hire the Pavilion for talks and meetings.

Running workshops

Ransom’s Pavilion is ideal for holding practical workshops or group tutorials.


The maximum numbers the pavilion can comfortably hold are:

  • 21 in an audience setting (plus presenters)
  • 12 seated at tables, either around one central table or at individual ‘workstations’ (plus tutors)
  • The building can hold no more than 37 people in total to comply with health and safety regulations.


Tea and coffee making facilities are available and there is a microwave and fridge, but there is no hob or oven at present. You may bring pre-prepared refreshments or we can provide them, but no food can be prepared on site.


Free parking* is available in the amenity carpark on Nightingale Road, next to the Esso garage. We kindly request that hirers and their guests use this facility and avoid parking in local roads for the convenience of our neighbours.

* Restrictions may apply
