Children’s Parties – Pioneer Hall

Looking for somewhere to host your child’s birthday party? Then look no further. The Pioneer Hall is the ideal venue for your Childrens Party.  We offer a Party Package which includes 3 hours hire, and Soft Play.  The hall will be set up ready for your arrival,  and the tables and chairs will be arranged for you.  All you have to do is arrange your own catering and decorations.  Once you have set up you can relax and watch the Children have fun.

In our kitchen you will have access to a fridge, microwave and hot water urn.  All we ask is that once you have finished, please ensure that all rubbish is disposed of using the refuse bags in the kitchen area and leave the hall the way you found it.

Please be advised that for safety reasons we will not supply a knife to cut the cake.
