Mistley Church Hall is available for hire!

Mistley Church Hall is over 100 years old, and considered by some to be an architectural gem! 
If you'd like to hire a venue with character, well placed between Mistley and Manningtree, near the Church and the Animal Centre, not to mention within sight of the river, please consider contacting us!

The Church Hall includes a good sized main room, and kitchen facilities.
