of Tansley Village Hall

The reviews below are taken from the independent website where Tansley Village Hall has a top (5-star) rating.

Reviewed June 2017

We hired Tansley Village Hall for our wedding reception initially for a couple of selling points being the large size of the kitchen, the 'bar' area and the location being adjacent to the village green and park (we had a number of children attending). However when we met Chris the caretaker and visited the hall we got so much more! The hall is immaculate, extremely well equipped and so spacious and Chris cannot do enough for you to help your booking go as smoothly as possible and is armed with a plethora of information for the hire of the hall. We would highly recommend the use of Tansley Village Hall for any use but can vouch that we had the best wedding reception ever – as agreed by all of our guests!

The hall was booked for our daughter's wedding reception and proved an excellent venue. Clean, fresh and well-appointed with very reasonable hire rates - it ticked all our boxes. We made full use of all the facilities - hall, kitchen, bar, stage, meeting room, lawn and car park. Large enough to accommodate our party (84) but small enough to generate the intimate and close atmosphere we wanted. It was also possible to turn the hall round quickly from a seated reception format in the afternoon to a dance area for the ceilidh band in the evening. Chris was superb with his support and assistance prior to the event and nothing was too much trouble. The day was an outstanding success due in no small part to the venue. I would highly recommend it.

We booked the hall for our wedding reception. Chris was very helpful from initially viewing the hall, right up to the big day. We had outside caterers for food, and they said it was the most well equipped hall they had seen. the hall was very clean, absolutely faultless. All our guests were really impressed with it. There isn’t anything we would change about the hall, it was perfect. :)

Beautiful and well-equipped hall which was perfect for our wedding party. Management of the hall is impeccable – Chris was generous with local knowledge and helpful advice for setting up and adapting the hall for our purposes. Excellent value and all-around lovely experience!

We hire for receptions between April and September, not October to March.

You are welcome to hire our ground floor comprising the main hall with bar area and stage and the adjoining meeting room with full kitchen facilities including a commercial oven. We hire on an hourly basis just for the time that you/helpers/caterers and guests are at the Hall. The hourly rate (for non-residents of Tansley) is £24 for the event (usually a Saturday) and for setting-up the day before (e.g. Friday). Clearing-up time, on the Sunday morning is free of charge. The total charge depends on the hours that you wish to have but typically it is somewhere between £300 and £400. We apply the same hire charges to all events/uses and do not charge extra for wedding receptions. If you live in Tansley, you will receive a 29% reduction in charges.

We have a car-park for 6 cars so most visitors must park in Church Street with no parking restrictions.

The car park may be used as an entrance space or visitors' parking.  Any other use such as for mobile catering vans requires our written agreement in advance. The rear grassy area is not available for use.

The main hall has a formal seated capacity around our tables of up to 70, typically arranged in a U-shape. We have 24 folding tables (approx. 1.2 x 0.7 metres) and comfortable, upholstered banqueting chairs. We provide white porcelain china, wine (not champagne) glasses, beer glasses and cutlery. We can provide sample room layouts and an equipment inventory.

We are not licensed for wedding ceremonies so you must enjoy these elsewhere, perhaps in Matlock's registry office or in one of the local churches.

As we are located in a quiet village setting and have an adjoining house as a neighbour, music must be kept to a reasonable level and must finish by 11.30 pm.

We have a good bar area inside the Hall and do not allow mobile bars outside.  If you sell alcohol you must apply for a licence using a TEN (see Facilities for Hire for details). If you provide alcohol free of charge then no licence is required.

We do not allow fireworks anywhere at our premises, neither inside nor outside.

We need you to visit to see what we offer before we accept your booking. 

Payment must be made in full including the returnable damage/excess cleaning deposit (£100) by bank transfer (BACS) no later than one week before the reception. Refunds are made by bank transfer so we will need your bank details to facilitate this.
