The Passmore Edwards Institute, a registered charity, has been Hayle’s Village Hall since 1896 and offers rooms and kitchen facilities for hire at economical rates. Hirers’ liability insurance is included for charitable and non-commercial users.

Redecorated inside and out in 2017-2018, the Institute is perfect for meetings, exhibitions, presentations and fitness groups. There is on-site parking for 12 cars and plenty of free on-street parking nearby. More information on rooms can be found by clicking on the Room Hire tab.

Please look through this site for information on the rooms, how to contact us and details of our history and organisation.

From January 1st, 2019, the room rates will be increased by £1 per session. The trustees spent over £22,000 in 2018 undertaking maintenance and refurbishment of the Institute. This included repainting, inside and out, new blinds and upgrades to our fire alarm system. We fund most major projects by fundraising and through grants and donations – this helps to keep rates as low as possible. However, the trustees have voted to make a small increase in room rates in order to keep pace with inflation and to ensure we have sufficient funds for prudent management of the building.
We do hope we can rely on your continued support.

If you pay by Standing Order, please notify your bank of the new rate
