Facilities for Hire

West facade of the Beit Emanuel synagogue

Beit Emanuel has an extensive campus of buildings. Some of these may be hired for meetings or for social or educational events.
Our largest facility is the Synagogue main functions hall. This extensive space includes a stage and two bar/food serving areas. The main hall can seat up to 200 people at tables seating up to ten persons for either formal or buffet-style meals. It is ideal for wedding receptions, birthday parties and entertainment performances on stage, or discos. There is a wooden dance floor.
For smaller functions seating up to about 80 people there is a suite of function rooms leading onto a delightful garden. This offers the hirer the choice of outdoor or indoor facilities, or a combination of both. The combined facilities can cater for 100+ people, especially for informal or buffet catering. Garden furniture (tables, chairs, large sun-shade umbrellas) is available.
In 2009 Beit Emanuel invested heavily in the creation of two completely new kosher kitchens (one for dairy and one for meat). These facilities are available for hire to any caterer conversant with and prepared to observe Jewish dietary regulations. The Rabbi or the Synagogue Sisterhood can advise on these rules.
We have a 140-seat auditorium with cinema-style seating which is suitable for larger meetings such as A.G.M.s or for lectures or showing films.
Smaller meeting rooms suitable for up to 40 people are also available.
Formal or informal catering and a range of lighter refreshments can be provided to support any event.
