Online booking

for MCA Sections & Affiliates

In the next few months, MCA is planning to change the booking system we use. To prepare for this, please contact the office for availability and bookings for 2025. The current availability & booking process is unchanged for 2024.  Information about the change will be published in due course.

Online booking for the Liston Hall rooms is currently available only for MCA sections & affiliates. Please click here to go to the Skedda system to view the availability calendar and log in.


Bookings can be made online up to 720 days in advance i.e. into 2025.  However please note the information above.

Paper or downloadable booking forms can continue to be used if you prefer. However we hope that you will find the online booking facility convenient and useful.  Please contact the office if you’d like to be registered for an account.


Step-by-step instructions on how to make a booking in Skedda are available here.  While the system is easy to use, it is important that you read and follow the instructions as they include useful details that may not be obvious and also specify some ‘house rules’ that must be followed. 


Hands-on training is available if required. Requests for this and any feedback on the system or process should be sent to or contact the office. 


Key points


When you make an online booking, you are agreeing, on behalf of the user of the booked spaces, to the full terms & conditions of hire as detailed here

Please note that the mandatory Booking Conditions have recently been updated with enhanced Fire Prevention and accident reporting measures and will be applied to ALL bookings regardless of when they were made.  Changes are highlighted in red in the relevant documents and noted on the main Booking page in Enhanced Safety measures.


Session timings and prices are exactly the same as for bookings made via the form. If you need a variation from the standard pattern, then you will need to contact the office. 

You will receive an email notification when you make a booking and also when any changes are made. 


Provisional bookings can be made, identified as such in the title (see step-by-step instructions) but must be cancelled or confirmed within 14 days as usual.


As has always been the case for sections & affiliates, a 50% charge will be made if a booking is cancelled between three and six weeks of the hire date with the full charge due if cancelled within three weeks of hire date. However the system will allow you to cancel up to 28 days before the hire date to enable bookings to be made for other user groups. The office will deal with cancellation charges when processing your invoices.

Payment for bookings will be handled as now on receipt of an invoice.
