DISCO / ENTERTAINMENT
Can I arrange my own?
Yes but your DJ must have a PRS licence. You can find out more here (www.prsformusic.com) but your DJ will probably know if they have this.
Is the venue used for…..
Wedding receptions? YES
Can the room be decorated?
Yes, but we do not offer decoration. You are welcome to decorate the room yourselves as long as no damage is caused to our walls.
Is there an area where children can play?
Children must be supervised at all times by an adult during your function. The club has quite large grounds but all children must be supervised.
What times can we have the room from/til?
This depends on the day. Usually on weekends you can come in and start decorating/preparing earlier, however some weekends there may be a day time function e.g. a Christening or a children’s birthday party which may last until 5pm. Speak to staff at the club to find out from what time the room is available.
The function room is available for hire until midnight.
Can I bring my own alcohol?
Strictly NO. Woodfield is a not-for-profit Social Club run by volunteers on behalf of its members. The function room bar and room hire help support our club. To bring your own alcohol means we lose out on revenue which hurts the club and puts the club’s future in jeopardy. Please support us and ensure that you and your guests only purchase drinks from the bar.
Can you put a disco on for me and if so, how much is it?
Yes, from £120.00 + VAT (Special Dates may be more)
Is there a stage in the function room we can use?
There is a small raised area in the corner of the function room that can be used as a stage. It’s nothing special, but it’s sufficient for a DJ/performer or for making announcements.
Is there any music/PA system I can use?
Yes, please speak to the club to arrange this.
Is there any provision for hot drinks for a day time group?
If hire is on a regular basis the Kitchen and water heater can be used. This must be pre-arranged with the bar Steward and there is likely to be a charge for this.
I have another question…who should I ask?
Ring the club on 01902 341 335. Please make sure you are ringing in club hours – from 5pm mon-fri or from midday at weekends.
