The gated driveway to the hall is on the right before you get to the sign saying you have reached the village, but after you have passed the entry to Studley Wood Golf Club (also on the right). There is a small signpost pointing to the hall on the left side of the road opposite the gate. The gate and hall should be open by 7.30pm.
