St Ambrose's Parish Centre
Borromeo Room

This modern building offers an ideal venue for group meetings or private functions, such as baptism parties, wedding receptions, birthday celebrations and funeral gatherings.



Borromeo Hall:

This is a large, well-lit room, with a capacity of 120 guests, and is part-carpeted with a wooden dance floor.  There are modern, comfortable furnishings, with the flexibility to arrange the chairs and tables as required.  This room is shown in the photo above.


Montini Room:

This is a meeting area, seating around 20 guests, that can be screened off from the main hall by a concertina partition, although it is accessible through only that hall.  It has a modular table that can be arranged to your needs, and a music system cupboard.


Also available with both of the rooms described above is a well-equipped kitchen, which offers tea and coffee-making facilities, two ovens, a hob and a fridge, plus plenty of crockery and cutlery.  There are hatches from the kitchen to both of these rooms.



Adams Lounge:

This room, which can hold up to 80 guests, is the parish bar.  It offers a good selection of beers and wines.  There are also several darts boards, a pool table and children’s activities available.  It is open as a public bar every day from 7 pm to 11 pm, although usually not on Mondays and Thursdays; furthermore, it is open on Sundays from 12 noon to 2 pm.


Wheatley Room:

This is a meeting area, seating around 15 guests.  It is accessible through only the lounge.  It is currently being redecorated; also, a door is to be fitted to separate better the two rooms.



Also available, for all guests, is the car park, accessible from Leswell Street, just off the main Birmingham Road.  During certain times, especially the school terms and coinciding events, it can become very busy.





Hire charges:


For the first hour, it costs £11; for every hour thereafter, the cost is £6 an hour.  This is the same regardless of the venue or time.


On Friday nights, there is a flat fee of £60; on Saturday nights, the price is £80.  Both of these rates apply from 5 o'clock.


If the bar is required outside its opening times, the charge is £10 an hour.  There is also the option of having food provided for an extra charge; this must be discussed with the independent caterer.


A booking is considered only provisional until receipt of a completed form and the deposit, which must be at least half of the overall hire total, to be paid by cash or cheque.  The balance is to be paid, also by cash or cheque, no later than 14 days before the event.  In addition, an indemnity payment of £25 is required for each booking, irrespective of which room is hired.  This will be returned by cheque within 10 days if no damage is caused.


Rates for multiple or regular bookings may vary: please enquire.  For regular hirers, there is the option to pay by bank transfer.






If cancellations are made within seven days of the booked date, the full hire charge for that date will be payable.  This is included in the Terms and Conditions, which are subject to change without notice; copies of this document are available upon request.
