Kinsbourne Common Hall, Harpenden

The ONLY way to make a booking is to contact the bookings manager. Ideally, fill in the form. If you need to phone, you can leave a message on 01582 380538. We aim to respond quickly, though bear in mind that the hall is run by unpaid volunteers. If you don’t hear back within a couple of days, feel free to phone to check.


To request a one-off booking, please check that the slot you want is not taken on the calendar, then use this form. You can work out the cost of the hire from the Hire Rates page, though we will confirm the price before your booking is confirmed. Before completing the form, please read the Standard Conditions for Hire and the associated terms and conditions (click the file to download it: hireagreement.pdf)


If you wish to send a query, but do not wish to book at present, use the queries form. You should also use the query form to request a regular booking, ie, that will recur at least once a month.


Requesting a booking does not guarantee a slot. Your booking is only confirmed when we explicitly say so, which is usually when you have received written confirmation containing our e-mail invoice and you have made cleared payment.


All hires will be at our sole discretion. Hires will not be permitted if, in our sole opinion, we have particular reason to think that it is likely that the hire will result in excessive noise, disturbance of neighbours, underage alcohol consumption, drug consumption or sale, or anything else which might be unlawful or illegal, a potential breach of our lease obligations or contrary to the objectives and values of the Scout Movement. The latter condition excludes use by organisations that are discriminatory. We will not hire the hall for political uses. We are not obligated to give a reason for declining a hire.
