We regret that due to the restrictions and added responsibilities occasioned by the COVID19 pandemic we are unable to consider any new hall hires for the time being. We hope to be able to accommodate all existing regular users but details have to be worked out to ensure that all using the premises are kept safe and that proper cleaning is carried out at all times. We hope to review the situation in due course. (Updated 22 September 2020)

At Newhaven we seek to serve the community by offering hire of our hall space at very reasonable rates. We have one large hall, which is suitable for parties or large meetings, a café area with tables and chairs, and two meeting rooms which can accomodate around 30 people each.
We currently have a number of regular users of our halls, but if you wish to enquire about hire of hall space, please contact the Caretaker using the contact details above and we will be happy to provide more information and assistance.
As from January 2018 our hall hire rates are as follows:-
The hire of the main hall, café or one of the two meeting rooms is charged at £20 for the first hour and £15 per hour or part hour thereafter.
We have a special rate for children’s birthday parties. The package includes use of the main hall and café area for a four hour time slot for a total charge of £60. Please note that we can currently only offer party hire on Saturday mornings/afternoons. Kitchen use is limited to the preparation of cold food, but there is an electric urn available for the preparation of hot drinks.
Please note that there is a no alcohol policy in place in relation to the use of our building.
As the main hall is situated below residential flats, we cannot offer it for events which may result in noise nuisance to our neighbours.
Our location on Craighall Road in Newhaven, close to Ferry Road, Leith Walk, and the bus stop hub at Ocean Terminal, makes our facilities easy to access from Edinburgh, Leith and the city bypass.
