The Whitehill Centre

The Whitehill Centre has it all, from ballet bars and cloak room through to internet access (due soon!).

With a shared kitchen, the whole venue is available for hire at reasonable rates.  Recently the improved and enhanced Whitehill car park, which can be accessed via steps, has added a substantial number of parking spaces within easy reach.

  • The kitchen is shared with both halls- so why not hire the whole venue and get exclusive use?

Hire Costs

Welwyn Parish Council keeps the costs down

The Council recognises the value of providing affordable venues for the use of residents and local community groups.  That’s why the council works hard to ensure that rates are kept down, in most cases subsidising them, for residents and local community groups use.  This allows our residents and local community groups to enjoy our venues for a variety of events.

The Pavilion kitchen is for sole use of hirers. For our other venues the kitchens are shared with the users of the other halls if the whole venue is booked.  The Parish Centre kitchen facilities are for tea/coffee use only (no cooking facilities).
