The following access statement does not contain personal opinions as to our suitability for those with disabilities, but aims to describe the facilities and services that we offer all our guests/visitors. We are not directly responsible for the facilities at Trelawnyd Memorial Hall, but provide this information as a support for customers of The Record Journal Live events.
Situated in the village of Trelawnyd, the Memorial Hall is the local village hall. It hosts a variety of community events and the annual flower show. It is also the venue for music events staged by The Record Journal.
The Hall is at the centre of the village on London Road (A5151), which is the main route between Dyserth and Rhuddlan (to the west) and Holywell and Halkyn to the east, which road intersects the village.
There are no upper floors to the Hall. The stage itself is raised above the main auditorium which enables a good view from any point within the Hall. There are no ‘restricted view’ areas.
The Hall was recently refurbished, and now provides a disabled person toilet, as well as a lift to stage level (for performers). There is level access into the Hall from the side of the Hall (off Chapel Street). If this side access is required, or you need more information or assistance, please contact us at The Record Journal so that we can ensure your visit and experience is excellent.

The nearest railway station is Prestatyn, which is approximately a 10 minute drive away, or from Rhyl, circa 15 minutes drive. Taxis are available at the station, but it is best to check this before departure. If you require an accessible taxi you will need to book this in advance.
Car Parking & Arrival
The Hall is on a corner crossroads position at the centre of the village between London Road and High Street. London Road is an ‘A’ class route, and care is therefore needed in approaching the Hall. There is a pedestrian crossing further west, circa 200 metres, along London Road. When crossing London Road please use the crossing.
There is a small (10 space) car park approximately 100 metres from the Hall further up the High Street. Pedestrians approaching the Hall is then via pavements.
Please note for normal evening events customers will park on the village side streets. Parking must of course be legal and not cause obstruction. If there is additional parking (eg. at the Folk at the Hall event on 9th June) customers will be advised of any separate arrangements. If you are a wheelchair user please call if more information is needed.
There is a narrow road alongside the Hall (Chapel Street) which can be used as a drop off point, but this may be being used to unload equipment also. It must not be used for general visitor parking.
Please note that Chapel Street is one way only, and can only be accessed from High Street, by taking the first right along Rhodfa Gop (just beyond the above mentioned car park), first right along Byron Street, and then back alongside the Hall on Chapel Street.
This is a small village location, with roadside parking – please therefore choose your drop off point and parking accordingly. If you have any doubts please contact us at The Record Journal.
Main Entrance and Reception Area
The main entrance is via metal gates, where there is one small tapered step, and a further 4 steps to the entrance lobby. From the lobby there is level access into the Hall.
Level access for wheelchair users is via a wide double fire exit door or standard side door (whichever is appropriate). Both doors are next to each other, to the side (Chapel Street) and stage end of the Hall. As noted, please call us in advance to arrange opening of these doors.
Please note that there are no pavements along Chapel Street or at either doors and entrance. You are advised therefore to take care as you approach the Hall, and be aware of any traffic.
The Hall auditorium (apart from the stage) is level throughout. Seating is not numbered. If as a wheelchair user you have specific requirements and preferences, we will reserve space accordingly. Please call us in advance so that we can ensure your experience is excellent and if reserved space is needed.
