Hire The Institute

The Institute can be easily booked for private functions and groups; indeed it is the backbone of many events in the area, including
* Weddings
* Meetings
* Christmas, Birthday, Anniversary Parties
* Art Exhibitions
* Craft Workshops
* Social Groups

This iconic building is an ideal venue for small wedding receptions and celebrations. It will seat a maximum of 50 people seated, or 60 standing. Licensed events can also be offered using Temporary Event Notices.

It is also a fantastic venue for local groups and organisations. Groups currently using the Institute include: Tai Chi, Yoga, Sewing Circle and W.I . It is also the home of many exhibitions which happen each year as well as the regular village coffee mornings which are held every Saturday morning to raise much needed funds for both local and mainstream charities.

Standing the test of time.

The Institutes prominent position comes at a price, the Grade 2 listed building is extremely vulnerable to attack from the sea and earlier structures on this site have been severely damaged or even swept away, as happened in 1819 in violent storms.

The building has a varied history before emerging in its present form, complete with Clock Tower, in 1920.

In the storms of February 2014 it would have suffered the fate of the first building except for the swift action of the trustees and prodigious efforts of the structural engineer and contractors who were quickly on the scene, working in atrocious conditions to avert disaste

To ensure this level of destruction never happens again, the sea defences of the Institute have been substantially strengthened, complete with a full wave return.

The Institute Snooker Club

The Institute Snooker Club is now up and running. The full sized table has been fully refurbished and re-covered following the storm damage it suffered in 2014.
