Toilets (including a toilet for less able-bodied people)
Small kitchen from which refreshments can be served (fridges, but no cooking facilities other than a domestic combo-microwave and two small hotplates). Cutlery (96 sets), small range of crockery, tea urns.
Parking for events in clement weather is in the field adjoining the churchyard, by courtesy of Mr. Martin Cox and the Highlands End Holiday Park. There is enough parking for 100 cars.
Under-floor heating for events in early spring and late autumn. During winter, it is impossible to heat to a comfortable temperature and therefore is not available for hire during the months December to March.
While there is a basic sound and lighting system, most promoters supply their own sound and lighting engineers and equipment.
The Eype Centre for the Arts does not provide any stewards or advertising and promotion for hirers’ events. The mailing list has been updated since the introduction of GDPR and newsletters are now being e-mailed out regularly. All events in the church are listed in the Parish Magazine, the “Eggardon and Colmers’ View”, and on holiday leaflets distributed in the local area. Please do your own promotions.
Seating – maximum 200 in the main body of the church, with additional seating for 22 choir in the chancel (staging area), approximately five metres across at its narrowest, some seven metres deep and approximately 2ft above the body of the nave. There is a movable ramp for wheelchair access to the staging area. All chairs are comfortable and can be stacked out of the way for exhibitions.
An antique Blüthner mid-grand piano is available for concert use. This is on an A-frame to facilitate moving the instrument into the desired position on the staging area.
There are professional hanging systems in place against white panels, protecting the exhibits from the stone walls. Free-standing spotlights and three screens are available for use. There are eight folding trestle tables for hirers’ use.
Please provide your own stewards for exhibitions.
