Venue Hire

Our premises have stood since 1867 and have lived through several transformations.  It was born as the Townhead United Presbyterian Church, then was reborn as a school cafeteria before becoming the home of The Usual Place.

Its unique history gives way to exquisite stained-glass windows and stunning Victorian architecture – a venue suited to a range of events.

Events previously held in our meeting rooms include team meetings, training sessions, presentations, interviews, luncheons and more!  While our room is typically set up board room style, we are very flexible and will create layouts and packages bespoke to you.

To book one, or both, of our rooms, please give us a call on 01387 253485 or email
