SPECIAL CONSIDERATIONS

The Miners’ Union Hall is a City-owned heritage community hall that does not have a full-time staff member on site at all times. Due to this, special consideration must be made when booking events as to your needs on the day of the event in regard to set-up, clean-up, audio visual requirements and more as these are solely the responsibility of the renter. If you are not familiar with the Miners’ Hall, we strongly suggest you hire a local event coordinator to act as your on-site, in-town staff member for your event. Options of coordinators and other service specialists are listed below.
