Venue Hire


COVID-19 Update

We’re looking forward to welcoming old and new customers to Emmanuel College in the coming months as we plan to re-open our excellent sporting facilities following the relaxation of Government Outdoor Sport restrictions.

We’re pleased to announce that all our outdoor facilities are now available for weekday evening booking sessions from 6pm – 10pm commencing from Tuesday 4 May, with bookings up to Tuesday 31 August 2021 currently possible. Our outdoor facilities are also now available for hire for organised activities during the day in school holidays. Please contact us for further details of our special daily rates. The school hire facilities as previously will remain closed during the Bank Holidays and Sundays.

Bookings of slots will be taken on a first come first served basis during this period, with no preferential treatment for customers who have previously used our facilities.

Additional COVID control measures continue to apply to the operation of facilities at this time. Further information is available as part of the booking process. Facilities will remain open so long as Government lockdown rules allow. Should we be required to again close facilities due to Government restrictions, bookers will receive a full refund for any payments made for cancelled sessions.

It is likely that our indoor facilities (Sports Hall, Main Hall, Dance Studio and Classrooms) will not be able to reopen for hire until late July 2021 at the earliest due to continuing COVID restrictions and their impact upon school operations, but should this change, we will let customers know as soon as we can.

We currently anticipate that all indoor and outdoor facilities will be open for booking without restriction from 1 September 2021 onwards (subject to College calendar). Further information about the booking process for slots from 1 September will be available in June 2021. We expect to offer customers who previously held regular weekly bookings a priority booking window to enable them to return to the slots they held should they wish to do so.

Please drop one of us a line if you need any further information:
