Operating from within the beautiful Victorian Letherhead Institute, the LCA receives its essential income from the hire of seven individual rooms located on the ground and first floor of the building - there is a lift between floors.
Rooms are hired on a sessional basis - currently over three daily sessions:
Hirers can combine two or more sessions to cover an overlap in time period, but due to build-up/break-down constraints, we are unable to offer hires outside of these sessions. E.g. if a hirer requires a start time of 12.30 for a scheduled meeting until 16.00, the room requires hiring from 09.00 - 17.00 (charged at two sessions).
Short hires will always be charged at the full session price as we are unable to rent rooms out for part sessions. E.g. if a hirer requires a room from 09.00 - 10.00, the full morning session price will be applied.
Access is allowed 15 minutes prior to the session time for build-up, and hirers are expected to vacate within 15 minutes of the end time, allowing time for break-down. All washing-up/room tidying is expected to be carried out within the hire period.
The recently refurbished rooms provide an attractive setting for business meetings and clubs alike, and they vary in size offering meeting spaces for just a couple of people, up to 150 people sat theatre-style. All room hires must be booked in advance, your invoice will act as your booking confirmation - please do not just turn up on the off-chance that a room might be available. If a short notice room hire is required, please telephone, we will be happy to accommodate you where ever possible.

First Floor Rooms:
All rooms have black-out facility, white boards/pull-down projector screens and can be laid out in either theatre-style, boardroom-style or around tables. Hire of any room includes free access to our Wi Fi network (current pass code available from the LCA office) and kitchen facilities.
The Institute has two kitchens available to hirers, one on the ground floor with hot water boiler, crockery and cutlery, and a newly refitted kitchen on the first floor, with hot water boiler, crockery and commercial dishwasher (3/5 minute wash cycle).
Hirers can either bring along their own provisions tea, coffee, milk, sugar, tea towels etc.to use with our hot water boilers or can utilise our Kenco coffee machine, located in the ground floor kitchen, offering tea, coffee, hot chocolate, cappuccino etc. at very reasonable cost. We expect hirers to wash up/use the dishwasher and replace crockery into the cupboards within their hire period.
Flip chart stands, paper and pens can be provided where required at minimal cost.
The Abraham Dixon Hall, with its beautiful timber-framed ceiling and curtained stage, has a state-of the-art overhead projector available to hire with drop-down screen and recently installed sound system with microphones. The sound system incorporates a hearing loop system. (Room G6 also has a hearing loop system).
Room F1A can be used as a break-out room from the AD Hall, as it is accessible from the rear of the hall, for an additional hire fee.
