The Pearl Beach Memorial Hall is a unique Central Coast venue with a rich 70 year history. A short 90 min drive from Sydney in the beautiful beachside village of Pearl Beach, home to the award-winning Pearls on the Beach restaurant, Crommelin Native Arboretum, gorgeous Ocean Pool and great Cafe.
Its spacious interior offers an elevated stage complete with the tables and chairs to support the seated capacity of 100 people, original polished wood floors, commercial kitchen, dedicated wall hanging system for art and high ceilings. The acoustics are excellent for drama and music events.
This versatile space also has a verandah and open grassed back yard that can be included in the hire. Pearl Beach Community Hall is an wonderfully historic blank canvas for guests wanting to plan and create their perfect occasion – wedding, anniversary, birthday, art show or corporate event.
On Friday, Saturday or any day preceding a public holiday, loud noise and music must cease by 11:00pm and the Hall mush be vacated by 11:30pm. On all other days, sessions must end by 10pm.
Deposit of $500 required for a booking which will be returned once the booking is completed. 25% of deposit will be deducted (along with cost of breakages) if Hall is not left in clean condition.
The Pearl Beach Progress Association was formed in 1929 by some of the original residents of Pearl Beach who began meeting to improve services to the Village. Land at 9 Diamond Road was purchased in 1943 by three members, William Steinbeck, James Armstrong, and William Frost, and a concerted effort of fundraising was conducted to raise the 1,000 pounds required to construct a Hall. Building commenced in 1948 and was completed in September 1950 with a combination of voluntary labour and assistance from local builders, Cliff Mazlin and Jack Butler. The hall became not only a community hall but also a memorial to the young men from Pearl Beach who died in WW11. The memorial in front of the Hall was built as a donation by Jack Butler and is used each year for the Pearl Beach Anzac Day service.
The Hall has a fully equipped commercial kitchen with all the utensils, crockery and cutlery to cater for 100 people. If the kitchen is required for a Commercial single hire (private function or wedding) then an additional fee of $200 applies. There are table cloths available for hire at $12 per table cloth. The fee covers the cost for dry cleaning. The Progress Association does not hire equipment for outside private events.
The Hall has ramp access and a unisex disability access toilet
Bluetooth Theatre/Speaker system and microphones available for use by the hirer.
For a seated function the maximum number of people of 100 is optimal. There are 20 rectangular tables that each seat 8 people. Alternatively there are 12 round tables that can seat 8 or 9 people. Sufficient chairs are available to meet the seating capacity. The limit for stand-up functions is 120 people. Hirers should not move or change the configuration of the stage. We also have a professional hanging system installed around the hall which makes it a perfect location for an art or photography show. If any changes are required notify the Hall Administrator of your requirements.
There is a deck that is partially covered and a grassed area out the back.
