Rooms for Hire
Liston Hall has 3 main spaces for hire - the Main Hall and the Garden Room each of which has access to the fully equipped kitchen, and the Thames Room with its own small kitchen. The Bruce Room is also available for hire.
A live availability calendar is online here, accessible to everyone 24 hours a day.
The Main Hall, the Garden Room and the kitchen are accessed through the main door of Liston Hall and are suitable for wheelchair users. Full toilet facilities are, of course, available.
The kitchen can be booked independently, but is more usually booked with the Hall or the Garden Room. It can be shared between the two if one or both bookings are only for tea and coffee.
