East Dean Hall is the largest of our two halls can seat up to 150 people, subject to use and table configuration.  With its high ceiling and excellent natural light, it is a popular venue for Art and Craft exhibitions and is the perfect venue for that resplendent wedding reception or special party, or for larger meetings and socials.  There is a hatch access to the commercially equipped Kitchen.

The Hall is ideal for stage productions; it boasts a fully equipped extendable stage, stage lighting, a public address and audio/visual system plus backstage facilities.  The East Dean Players perform two productions here each year.

Audio visual equipment is available including an overhead projector.

Friston Hall is the second of our Halls and can seat up to 50  people, subject to use and table configuration.  It has access to an outside fenced lawn area.  An ideal venue for birthday parties, meetings and socials.
