A different kind of venue for that special occasion
If have been in Borehamwood long enough, you may have knowledge of the old club situated under the Saints John Fisher and Thomas More Church. After a few years of not being used, the venue is now available for hire in a similar way to St Teresa’s Parish Centre – although it is quite a different venue. With a lot of the fixtures and fittings from the original club, the “Crypt”, as it is referred to, is currently looked after by a group of dads who initially were only connected by the fact they all had children attending St Teresa’s school.
The Crypt has a capacity for approximately 60 people. It has a full licence, two large screens, and a pool table among other things. It has hosted Confirmations and Communion parties, St Patrick’s Day, New Year’s Eve, family parties, quiz nights, youth club, folks nights, etc
The Crypt does not operate regular hours and is normally open only as part of private hire. The normal charge would be £35-£45 an hour, depending on the number of people and bar staff required. A deposit of £100 is required. The Crypt is run as a non-profit operation, with its use primarily for the benefit of the parish. Income generated is used to cover staffing costs and the upkeep/improvement of the venue and its grounds. It also supports some worthwhile church and local communities causes.
Please note the following:
- the venue does not have facilities for cooking or providing hot food because of its age and location
- there could be accessibility issues due to a number of steps entering the site.
- as this is supported by volunteers and does not have the staffing levels or expertise of a normal pub or club, it does not cater for or accept bookings for functions that may involve large groups of young adults (e.g., 18th or 21st birthdays)
