Venues

Essex

Wanstead House, 21 The Green, Wanstead, London E11 2NT

Kent - Venue 1

Our Lady of Crays, 312 High Street, St Mary Cray, Orpington BR5 4AR

See Map: https://lowcosthalls.co.uk/location/orpington/

The Hall is a good size and has plenty of ventilation. Refreshments (tea & coffee) will be available at the venue.

An important note:  There is what appears to be an electronic gate in the High Street leading to the Hall.  This is permanently closed and there’s no operator.  From the High Street you'll need to turn into Blundell Close and follow that around to the Hall.   There’s plenty of car parking spaces.  There is also an overground railway station at St Mary Cray with trains to and from London Victoria.  It’s about a 20 minute walk to the Hall.

We are required to vacate the Hall and the Car Park by 5.00pm.  Therefore Kent home games will need to start at 12.30pm.
