Parish & Ward Church of St. Botolph without Bishopsgate

Hall & Court Hire

The Hall

The Hall is available to hire for a wide variety of private or commercial functions. In 2010 the Lower Hall, kitchen, toilets, and Upper Hall were redecorated, and step free access was added to the Upper and Lower Hall, also a Disabled Toilet was added . The interior is panelled with oak, acquired from a dismantled stately home in Northamptonshire and dating from 1726. It is particularly suitable for Livery Company dinners and meetings.

Tennis and Netball Court

As the Church is now reopening we are now able to also reopen the Court for tennis only during the same staffed times. Monday to Friday 12noon - 3pm only at the moment.

The court will be opened by the caretaker and the net will be up ready.
The gate and the net mechanism will be cleaned each morning but please do bring your own hand sanitiser to use as well.
The hut will not be accessible and please do not enter the court until the previous players have left.
Bookings will be 50mins long to make sure the court is vacated before the next players arrive and will start at 12noon, 1pm, and 2pm the cost for each booking will be a special rate of £15.

The Court can be booked by emailing
Payment must be cash (exact amount no change will be available) in an envelope marked with your name and the date and time of the booking and must be left with a member of staff in the Church before entering the court.
