Social & Charity events

Situated in the centre of the village of Ashover, the centre is an ideal location for social, community and charity events. Our car park provides parking for over 80 cars and the adjacent show ground field can usually be hired locally if additional parking space is required. 

The three modern function rooms can be hired together to afford separate areas for events such as craft fayres and art exhibitions, or as individual spaces. Measuring 16 meters in length and licensed for 200 guests, the Amber Hall offers plenty of room for events including barn dances, charity dinners or even ferret racing! The light and airy Fabrick room is ideal for smaller events such as band rehearsals and social gatherings. 

If you are looking to host a charity fundraiser please contact us, as you may be entitled to our charity rate of hire. (A registered charity number is required).

If you are providing catering at your event we can provide crockery, cutlery, glasses and table linen for a small charge. Please see our food and drink page for more details.

We have various furniture options including both circular and rectangular tables of various sizes and over 300 chairs.

Our Amber Hall stage and integrated microphone system are perfect for events such as quizs, raffles and competitions. The Fabrick Room is also equipped with high quality audio-visual equipment.

We are happy to assist with advertising and will, in most cases, post information about your event on our News, Facebook and Twitter pages.  We will also, where possible, display posters and flyers in and around the centre.

Whatever you are planning, we have the facilities and experience to help make everything run smoothly.

Regular classes and groups

We already have many local groups, clubs and exercise classes based at the centre (see our Regular Clubs and Classes listing for details) so if you are planning to start a new group, or are looking for a new venue, please get in touch. The more the merrier!

As mentioned above, we are usually happy to promote regular groups on our social media accounts and website. We will also display flyers and posters around the centre wherever possible. 

If you are running regular classes or a club, the dates and times will be displayed on our website calendar, making the information easily accessible to your clients/members.
