Hirers are welcome to organise their own catering and banqueting or, if you wish, we can provide you with help and support about how to access this locally through our list of local suppliers.
We have particular rules about catering though which have been put together to ensure proper food safety and hygiene standards are maintained whatever you choose to do. Below is the extract from our Health and safety instructions which summarises the main conditions:
Parties and organisations preparing buffets and refreshments are not permitted to set out food more than three hours before the time of intended consumption and are asked to store at a safe temperature prior to this.
If you intend to organise your own catering we request you refer to the food safety guidelines for such found at food.gov.uk.
All food waste is to be tidied up and placed in bin bags, taken out of the building and disposed of properly after each event. Absolutely no food or waste is to be left in the building overnight.
