The Jubilee Hall is the natural setting in Chagford for all types of functions and community events up to 260 people. Charity events, auctions or bazaars find the Jubilee Hall ideal. Various sporting groups enjoy regular meetings. The in-built stage makes it a popular setting for shows, concerts and films. Jubilee Hall is also well suited to social gatherings such as weddings, receptions, dinners or dances. Such is the flexibility of the Jubilee Hall that for over 70 years it has provided a focal point for Chagford and the surrounding villages.
Built in 1936 by public subscription, visitors and organisers appreciate its easy access. The large, public car park alongside provides effortless parking. The Hire charges are modest as we have to generate our own income without external support.
Chagford was one of four medieval Stannary towns which played an important part in the commercial and political life on the edge of Dartmoor for several centuries. Today, the community events of this bustling community make use of the Jubilee Hall.
Whilst we have managed to hold the costs relating to the hire of hall for many years, we regret that in light of increased energy costs we are now going to have to increase our charges. With effect from 1st January 2023 these will be:
£ 12.00 / hr ... Charities / Not for Profit / local clubs
£ 18.00 / hr ... Non Commercial Private Hire - eg Birthday parties, wakes etc (excluding Weddings - see below)
£ 24.00 / hr ... Trade/private hires/classes that charge an entry fee (eg bands, pay per session classes, fund raisers for non-charity events)
For concessionary and special regular user rates (typically for 12 hirings a year, or more) or events benefiting the community, please contact the booking secretary.
For these, the 'day rate' is charged as 15 hours and the charge period is 9:00 am to midnight.
Example: A private party on a Saturday night wanting to set up from 4:00 pm on Saturday and clear up on Sunday morning, vacating by 11:00 am. This would be charged as 8 hours on Saturday (4:00 pm to midnight) and 2 hrs on Sunday (9:00 am to 11:00 am). Total 10 hours @ £18 = £180. (plus Supplements for kitchen and crockery - see below).
WEDDINGS - will be charged at a fixed 'Wedding weekend' fee of £540, which hires the Hall from Friday 2:00 pm through to Sunday 1:00 pm.
