Free Word Hall | Free Word

Our hall is bright and beautifully spacious, with polished wooden floors and high ceilings. The hall alone can accommodate up to 100 people standing. We can also open up the wall* between the hall and the theatre, creating one large unified space for events that can hold up to 200 people standing.

Additionally, we offer a variety of seated formats including formal dining. Both the theatre and hall are equipped with dimmable lighting, so we’re able to create a special atmosphere for your event. There are a wide range of options, so if you have a dream setup, please do get in touch with us to discuss – it may well be possible!

*Please note: we can only open the wall if this has been agreed at least 24 hours in advance of your booking. We are not able to do this at short notice. On weekdays, the hall can only be hired after 5pm.
