Queen’s Park Community Centre

Available for hire at a variable cost depending on the type of function and frequency of booking. It is regularly used for exercise classes, social clubs, one-off parties for children and adults, wedding receptions, wakes and a whole host of other activities. It consists of one large room (max capacity 200 seated, 250 not seated). There are sufficient tables and chairs to seat 200, a good sized kitchen, a small stage and a PA system. The Centre is accessible for wheelchair users and has a separate toilet for use by the less able. It is possible to have a bouncy castle set up within the Centre due to the high ceiling.

The hire charge varies according to the nature of the booking. Prices for regular hirers start at £14. The Centre can be used alongside the church, but it is necessary to take a few steps outside to move between to two buildings.

The Centre is operated as Bedford Borough Council facility Monday to Saturday and as the All Saints’ ‘Church Hall’ on a Sunday

All Saints’ Church

Suitable for formal and informal concerts/musical events. It has a marvelous acoustic and the main nave area is a flexible space as there are no fixed pews. The church has a maximum capacity of 250 and is easily accessible for wheelchair users. We have an excellent grand piano available for use if appropriate.

A sound system is available within the hire rate. The church is normally let in tandem with the Parish Room (see below). The hourly rate for bookings is £55 or £45 (groups associated with the church), this rate includes the use of the Parish Room whether it is required or not.

Parish Room

Situated alongside the church, accessed via a tiled entrance hall. It is possible to hire the Parish Room separately from the church, if there are no conflicting functions. The Parish Room has a maximum capacity of 50, a sink unit and fixed work surface with cupboards below accommodating cups, saucers and plates. Kettles and an urn are available, but there are no cooking facilities in either the Parish Room or the church.

The room is regularly used for social clubs and small parties and can be hired separately for £12 an hour.
