Private Hire

Our village hall is a modern building, set in the heart of the picturesque village of Swanton Morley.  The hall is well equipped for a variety of occasions.  We have a main hall, a smaller meeting room, commercial kitchen facilities and a licensed bar.  For those wanting to hold an outdoor event or play outdoor sports, we have a large field comprising of 2 football pitches as well as indoor changing facilities.  There is also a large, gravelled car park, adequate for even the biggest events.

 

Our main hall can hold 280 people standing or 180 people seated.  We are fully licensed by the Performing Rights Society, so you are welcome to provide any type of musical entertainment for your guests.  We have full Wi-Fi facilities and can accept debit and credit card payments for both booking fees and at the bar.

 

Whether you wish to use our hall for a large wedding reception, a small charitable event or even to start up a new club, we are sure that we have the facilities to accommodate you, at a price you will welcome.  If you would like to take a look around the hall or discuss the needs of your event, please do not hesitate to contact us.

 

We look forward to seeing you soon.
