YMCA Hawker is a community centre situated in an idyllic location alongside the river Thames in Ham, a five minute drive from the centre of Kingston and offers a wide variety of function options for all occasions, whether it be for a corporate event, a birthday party, a celebration, a christening, a wake or a wedding reception with waiter service. You can book catered or self-catered room hire, which features a beautifully decorated and stylish riverside restaurant plus a room with a sprung floor (perfect for dancing), as well as a fully licensed bar. For the warmer summer months, there is also a stunning outside terrace and a barbecue. We have a range of state-of-the-art audio visual equipment which is particularly useful if you have an exhibition or a ticketed event. You may wish to hire a DJ or a live band for your function and we can accommodate that, too.
Our room capacity is 150 people standing, 70 seated and room hire starts at just £25. We have an exciting selection of menus ranging from £5.95 to £24.95 per head and we can provide classic finger buffet food to a sumptuous three-course meal. Our fully equipped bar and music is available until 11pm (corkage is available upon request). What’s more we are an inclusive facility with full disabled access with ample free parking.
We are very flexible and will be happy to discuss your requirements to make sure we provide you with an unforgettable event for you and your guests. Call YMCA Hawker to arrange a visit so that you can see our excellent venue for yourself and talk through the options we offer. All funds raised will be used to support the community work of YMCA St Paul’s Group.
Thank you and your team for making our party a truly memorable event.
Over 70 guests had a great time, as we did, and most have written to say so. Many said how fantastic the venue was, with great staff and good food, too.
Band and disco were also very complimentary about the food. And there was plenty of it.
And the ‘Dodgems On Legs’ Ceilidh went down very well.
We were thrilled by how easy your team made everything for us.
Once our decorations were dropped off, you made everything so easy, and all the arrangements were in place, perfectly.
Everyone loved the canapes and nibbles, and your team ensured everyone had some fizz, getting our party off to a great start.
Finally, it was wonderful to drop by next day, to see no trace of our mess, to finalise accounts, say thank you, and pick up all our bits and bobs, all neatly boxed.
Please pass our heartfelt thanks to your super team!
We’ll pop in and say ‘Hi’ next time we walk your way.
