Tucked away in the small historical village of Copley, on the outskirts of Halifax, West Yorkshire, Old Rishworthian RUFC offers a spacious and attractive party venue with a fully licensed bar, dance floor, kitchen and disabled facilities. We are able to accommodate up to around 120 seated or 200 standing guests in-house, with further space outside on the patio area.

We host all kinds of events, including:

  • Wedding Breakfasts
  • Engagement Parties
  • Christenings
  • Birthdays
  • Family Celebrations
  • Reunions
  • School Proms
  • Charity Fundraisers
  • BBQs
  • Awards Ceremonies
  • Sports Days
  • Corporate Training Days
  • almost any event where people seek to gather

Our fully licensed bar serves a selection of cask ales, keg beers, wines and spirits. Whilst we only offer simple food options ourselves, we also provide our kitchen facilities and fridges for use by outside caterers where needed.

Our outside semi-sheltered patio area looks out across our magnificent playing fields and the nearby woods, making a beautiful setting on a summer evening. We also have space to site a bouncy castle or other outdoor amusements by arrangement if needed.

For our disabled guests (or those with pushchairs, etc.), we have ramped access to our clubhouse from our large and flat car park.

We are on direct bus routes to Halifax and surrounding towns and villages, and we are promptly served by a number of local taxi firms.

If you're looking for a friendly and competitively priced venue for any kind of gathering, then please get in touch. We're here to please and satisfy your requirements. Just ask.
