Rental + Event Planning

The District of Wells manages a number of spaces that can be rented in the District for a variety of events.

Community Hall

The Community Hall has a number of spaces that can be booked together or separately. The Main Hall is an excellent venue for larger groups, parties or reception events. The Banquet Room is a smaller more intimate space used by the community for potlucks, bino and open houses. The Ballet Room is used for yoga, but has also been used for CHinese dance and other movement classes. The Kitchen, which adjoins the Banquet Room, can be booked by itself or in conjunction with other events in the Banquet Room or the Main Hall.

Community Centre

The Community Centre, when the Wells-Barkerville Community School is not in session, has spaces that can be rented either as studio space or by visiting school groups.
