Dame Elizabeth Hall is managed by Bournville Village Council (BVC) on behalf of Bournville Village Trust. Situated in the heart of Bournville, behind Elizabeth Court on Firbank Close (off Oak Tree Lane), the hall is operated on a not-for-profit basis, and all charges collected are put towards the care and maintenance of the building and its facilities.
The building is ideal for meetings and conferences as it sits away from main roads but is also easily accessible by public transport. The nearest train station (Bournville) is just a short 10 minute walk away and the number 27 and 11 buses stop just 2 minutes walk away from the building.
We have three rooms available for hire. The two ground floor rooms have disabled access, and also have a lockable interconnecting door. The 1st floor room is our only room which does not have disabled access. It is accessed by stairs from the main corridor, and also has a seperate spiral fire escape. All of the rooms have a projector screnn and also benefit from their own kitchen areas which are available for hirers to use at no additional charge.
All rooms are accessible via the main corridor and in addition, the main hall also has seperate doors which can be used for loading and unloading of equipment (3 steps).
Whilst we don’t provide on-site catering, we have very good connections with local suppliers, and can provide details upson request. We are also happy for you to make your own catering arrangements.
For the benefit of our neighbours, the main room is fitted with a noise limiter which is set to a pre-defined level. If the noise level in the room exceeds the warning threshold, a light is illuminated to warn the user. If this level is consistantly exceeded for more than 10 seconds, the power is automatically switched off. The power is then restored after a further 10 seconds, and the unit reset. For this reason, we do not allow the use of battery powered audio equipment in the building.
