Polwarth Church has a range of facilities available for hire. We are particularly interested to accommodate groups and people who share our interest in wellbeing.

The facilities

Church accommodation comprises:

  1. the sanctuary (a large, rectangular 300-seating capacity space),

  2. a large 100 capacity hall (13.5m x 12m) known as the Drennan Hall and

  3. a small 30 capacity hall (9m x 5m) known as the Small Hall.

With the pews removed, the sanctuary is a flexible space for holding concerts, art shows etc.  There is access for the less mobile to all accommodation. Please note that we do not hire out the Sanctuary for ceilidhs or parties.

 

The sanctuary boasts a very fine acoustic for both choral and instrumental music.  The main ‘nave’ area of the church has seating capacity for 300 people and there is a large area at the transept crossing for performers plus a large raised chancel area which is suitable for a large choir with orchestral accompaniment.  There is also a Yamaha baby-grand piano, which along with the organ can be used for accompanying concerts.  For further information about Polwarth as a music venue, please contact the director of music, and for up and coming concerts, please see What’s on?
