The Main Hall

 

Originally built to commemorate the local service personnel who lost their lives in World War 1, this wonderful hall has served as the centre of village life since the early 1920s.

The venue is used for everything from weddings, parties, quizzes and charity events, to craft fairs, concerts, funeral wakes, theatre productions, cinema, badminton, ballet, clubs, AGMs… with seating for about 200 there is no limit as to how you can use the hall.

The Hall has benefited from extensive redecoration, finished to a high standard, as you can see on the virtual tour below.  The large stage is perfect for shows and concerts, with a lighting gantry and sound system (available for hire – see booking form), but is equally excellent for parties, fairs and more.
