Activities and Bookings Manager

It has been a strange year. As lockdown descended, our streets emptied, our shops and restaurants closed, and our way of life changed. Over the past year we’ve made improvements to our home at Fearon Hall, made it Covid secure and continued to support the most vulnerable in our community. We have now moved into a planning to reopen phase and are looking for groups to return to our building.

Do you need a family party in 2021, a wedding, birthday, anniversary? Are you looking for meeting space, hot desks, classrooms? If so then contact us now to reserve your preferred dates.

As the Activities and Bookings Manager at Fearon Hall, I’m available to take queries via email on bookings@fearonhall.org.uk or Mon-Fri 10-4 to answer your call on 07710 721 481.

Site tours can be arranged but do need to be booked in advance to ensure the safety of all our visitors and staff. We also have a virtual tour of Fearon Hall which can be viewed here or you can check out the details for all our available rooms here.
