Prema is a family friendly Arts Centre, promoting performance, live music and art exhibitions as well as accessible workshops, classes and creative experiences for kids and adults.
Prema, near Dursley in the Stroud valleys, offers an affordable day out for all folk in the South West.
Our glorious Grade II listed chapel is available for hire during the daytime as well as in the evenings and at weekends. It's the perfect location for a truly remarkable party. Maybe you're planning a shabby chic wedding or a birthday party in an unusual setting?
Prema can help you to turn every celebration, meeting or gathering into a personalized, intimate event at a cost that won't break the bank.
The following rooms can be booked individually, in groups or we do a whole building deal. Please note that Prema has a noise curfew of 23.00hrs. Nicola and the team from Vestry Café can provide food and drink to add a further delicious dimension to your party, gathering or meeting.

Our Upstairs Room is a beautiful, light and airy space that measures 13.5m x 10m (with a half-hexagonal end facing our garden). The space has a flexible seating rake, balcony and resources including a wide range of stage lights and a PA system. This very adaptable, beautiful space is ideal for rehearsals, screenings, weddings, parties and celebration of a loved one's life, conferences, meetings or training sessions. We would recommend a ceiling of 80 people in Prema's Upstairs Room. Prices start at £60 per hour but for longer or more regular hires, the price can be revised downwards.
At the back of Prema is the old Sunday school room. This beautiful, recently refurbished space is warm and welcoming with exposed oak beams and Velux rooflights which flood the space with natural light. For evening sessions we have a flexible lighting system in the space meaning that there’s plenty of LED lighting for close, detail work for making and studying or a warmer, more ambient lighting mood for an informal meeting. Prema’s Old School Room comfortably accommodates 12-14 people for a workshop or meeting with folding chairs and solid wooden tables. This room can be hired for £25 per hour or if rented along with the Old Pottery the two rooms are £37.50 per hour – thus giving ample space for up to 24 individuals. For longer or more regular hires, the price can be revised downwards.
Nestling at the back of the chapel is Prema's Old Pottery. Accessed via the Old Schoolroom, this smaller, toasty-warm room is perfect for a more intimate workshop setting or a light, airy space for a meeting. Our Old Pottery is separated from the Old Schoolroom by means of a folding glass wall, meaning that the two rooms may be hired in tandem for larger groups by simply unlatching the glass wall and folding it back. The Old Pottery comfortably accommodates up to 8-10 people and is drenched in natural light from the Velux rooflights and a glass door to the private courtyard to the east elevation of the chapel. A versatile LED lighting system in the room allows for a brightly-lit space for workshops or a gentle warm light for a friendly and productive meeting. The Old Pottery space measures 6.3m x 3.4m and is available for hire from £20 per hour but if rented along with the Old School Room the price is £37.50 per hour for the two spaces. For longer or more regular hires, the price can be revised downwards.
