Briston Pavilion Facilities

Briston Pavilion can be hired as one complete building, as all the rooms are inter-connecting and internal doors can be removed to open it up, into one large area. Alternatively, each of the 3 rooms can be hired individually.

In total, the facilities include 16 rectangular, wooden tables and 108 soft-backed chairs (mostly red). These are usually shared by the Main Hall and Meeting Room.

Lofty’s Bar includes an additional 6 tables, 24 matching chairs and 3 matching taller bar chairs (in a silver, metal style).
