Westgate Hall takes care of your health and wellbeing venue hire needs so that you can focus on taking care of our community

Civic duty is second nature at Westgate Hall – we’re here to support you in helping everyone to stay well. Trusted by the NHS, our spacious, hygienic, Covid-secure accredited Hall has hosted blood donation sessions for years. We have continued to do so throughout the Covid-19 pandemic, providing a space for this vital service. In 2021, Wellness Markets come to the Hall for the first time, extending the range of health-focused events we host.


A Safe, trusted and respected community venue

With 360-square-metres and a fully accessible building, social distancing is easy and separate entrance and exit routes makes it simple for managing people flow. The adjacent Pound Lane car park makes direct access easy, with free parking for key staff. We can host large-scale vaccination sessions and health screenings and tests. At Westgate Hall, we offer a higher than average number of spots at the required social distance. Covid-secure practices are in place, confirmed by our ‘We’re Good to Go’ accreditation.

NHS Blood and Transplant

“During the Covid-19 pandemic NHS Blood & Transplant have faced new challenges, including many of our regular venues being used for other purposes including Testing & Vaccination Centres. We are so grateful to Westgate Hall for being there for us at all times, accommodating us at short notice and always meeting all of our needs. They have a fantastic space which means we have never had to reduce the size of our sessions despite the additional safety measures we have put in place and the team there are consistently friendly, helpful and a pleasure to work with.”
