Hiring in Amersham
Amersham Friends Meeting House
Hospitable, tranquil and accessible. This 17th century building, sited in a meadow, benefits from modern kitchen and toilet facilities, yet retains its sense of history and heritage.
It is suitable for events such as small public meetings,
discussion and study groups, counselling services, gatherings
of families and friends, exhibitions and garden parties.
The Meeting House is in Old Amersham and near the Hospital
and the Crematorium. Parking is available on site.
About the facilities
The two main rooms can be used as one by opening an original sash
wooden screen which separates them. Together they would accommodate a public meeting of 90 comfortably.
For separate meetings or buffets there are tables, chairs and benches
which can be arranged by the hirer to suit the occasion.
Use of the kitchen is included free of charge. Hot and cold drinks,
biscuits and cakes can be served from a hatch opening into the
Lobby. Additional pre-prepared foods can be enjoyed at occasional,
small and simple events, or professional outside caterers may be engaged to provide refreshments. There is accessibility for wheelchairs from the parking area. The meadow and lawn areas are available for events which require their use for seating or activities.
A separate meeting room, accommodating up to 10 people comfortably, can be used for small meetings or for counselling.
