Club Social Events and Hire of the Clubhouse and Facilities
East Molesey Cricket Club is a very sociable club. Throughout the year, we organise a range of social functions - from quiz nights to discos, karaoke nights to curry evenings – not to mention the awards nights, summer parties, river boat trips and barbecues. These events are arranged for all our members, whether playing or social, and often include Colts of all ages together with their families. Many of these functions take place on warm, balmy evenings along the banks of the River Thames; however, with the facility of Sky TV, we hope to extend our social calendar into the winter months by including the viewing of sporting events.
As well as having a great time, social events represent one of the major ways of raising much-needed funds for development of the new second pitch on Hurst Meadow and building of a new Pavilion. Please keep up to date with forthcoming events by regularly checking this website.
EMCC will be sending out regular announcements via email. If you would like to be informed about forthcoming social events please let the Club Secretary (see contact details) know your current email address.
Hire of Clubhouse and Facilities
For many years, the EMCC Clubhouse and facilities have been made available to the wider community, local businesses and residents who live in the Molesey and surrounding areas. The Clubhouse is large enough to host most types of events including children’s (up to under-11s) and adult birthday parties, anniversary celebrations, wedding receptions and corporate sports days.
The Clubhouse can seat up to 120 guests for a formal dinner function or host 150 guests for a less formal party in the main hall. In the summer months, when guests can utilise the extensive outside patio and river seating areas, up to 300 people can be accommodated.
Club and social members can hire the Club’s facilities for an evening function at any time of year for £300 (subject to approval of the EMCC Committee).
Current EMCC playing members and committee members may hire the Club’s facilities for an evening function at a hire fee agreed by the EMCC Committee.
Non-members can hire the Clubhouse for an evening party (from 7.00pm to 11.00pm) either mid-week or at the weekend for £400. The fee includes the cost of a staffed, licensed bar, all utilities (gas, electricity etc), insurance, cleaning of Clubhouse, security and other associated costs.
Information for hirers
- Hirers can arrange their own live entertainment, for example, discos, karaoke, bands etc.
- Hirers may apply for a late licence facility (up to 12.00am latest) for an additional fee and subject to availability.
- Hirers (or guests) are not allowed to bring their own alcohol onto licensed Club premises. All alcohol must be supplied and purchased by EMCC who always try and accommodate specific requests for wine, beer, etc.
