Rattle Room

The Rattle room offers an intimate space for meetings, dinner parties, clubs or educational classes.


Theatre/conference style 20 people

Classroom/ dinner party (rectangular tables) 12 people

Buffet style 12 people

Named in honour of the ‘knocking and rattling’ noises made by stocking frame knitting machinery, which were regularly heard in the village during the Industrial Revolution, the Rattle room offers an intimate space for meetings, dinner parties, clubs or educational classes.

While it is is the smallest of the centre's room, the room is cosy, comfortable and, as with all areas of the centre, finished to a very high standard. 

Groups, such as the Art Club and local Girl Guiding leaders, use the Rattle room on a regular basis and find it to be a good value option for smaller gatherings.

A portable projector (with built-in speakers) and a screen can be set up in the room on request. Along with all other areas of the building, the room is served by a wireless internet connection.

The Rattle room can also be used alongside one of the larger function rooms to provide extra space for storage, extra seating or, as is quite often the case, an area to set out a buffet.

The room is served by the same kitchen and fully-licensed bar as the rest of the centre with access through the door to the adjacent lobby. The room also has a second door which leads straight into the Amber Hall.
