May Heydays at Evesham: Venue
The halls — we think the photos speak for themselves!
Where is it?We have found a very co-operative and forward-looking school in Evesham. They are charging us less than the combined Eastbourne venues came to, offering us better facilities and helping us to keep future ticket prices affordable. The De Montfort School (at WR11 1DQ) is already used to renting out the whole school for weekend events. It is only half a mile from the town centre and offers us 6 halls, all on one site! The three main halls have wooden floors and are sizeable (similar to the main hall at St Catherine's); the other halls come in various shapes and sizes. The committee thinks that dancing will be a joy at this venue.
We will have the use of the adjacent extensive playing fields for camping – tents and caravans. The fields are all fenced and gated, and will be locked at night. Additionally, there is hard standing for mobile homes and access to the school WCs and showers 24/7. Most of the halls are equipped with in situ PA, and the school's caterers are looking to provide us with food at reasonable prices.
The De Montfort School is off the A46 Cheltenham Road, via Fairfield Road to Four Pools Road,
or off Coopers Lane, via Durcott Road to Four Pools Road. Download map in PDF format.
