How to set your hiring rates


We have compiled a report showing how much Hampshire’s community halls and associations charge to hire out rooms of various sizes. The report is free to download from the link below and will give you a starting point for working out how much to charge for your facilities.


We would still appreciate more data for the report, however! So, if you haven’t already sent us your charges, please email us with the following details of each room that can be hired in your building(s):

  • Approx area in square metres (or just give us the room length and width)
  • Approx capacity (seated)
  • Charge per hour for local people / groups
  • Charge per hour for non-local users
  • Charge per hour for commercial hirers
  • Any comments / notes

Please give the cheapest standard price for one-off bookings. It’s perfectly fine to charge more at peak times, and to give a discount for regular bookings; but please just let us know the one-off rate.

Email us with your data and feel free to call 01962 857358 with any queries. If your organisation is an Action Hampshire member then we can also send you an Information Sheet (from this range) with guidance on working out your running costs and setting your rates accordingly.
