Village Hall

Index

Welcome to the Information Page
The Venue
The Village Hall is the centre of our community. It is used by hundreds of Village people each year for regular group and activity meetings ranging from Baby & Toddler through to Golden Years. It is used for Parties, Discos, Dances, Performances, Receptions, Rural Cinema, etc. as well as for Fetes, Bazaars and local elections. In fact, our Village Hall is licensed (under the Licensing Act 2003) for everything except boxing and wrestling! In May 2008 we were awarded Hallmark 1 and Hallmark 2 quality standards.

It is an ideal venue for people both inside and outside of Ashton Keynes. We have a substantial car park and a bus stop right outside.

The Main Hall has been redecorated and the chairs replaced – just look at the Photo Gallery to see the décor and how a large function can be laid out. The Main Hall caters for 120 people comfortably sitting. More people can attend if there is a mixture of sitting and standing (or dancing). There are 130 upholstered chairs and a further seven with wide bases and arms. We have a number of plastic chairs (both large and small) if required. There are plenty of tables in a variety of sizes.

The Ashton Keynes Room is a smaller room that, if required, can be partitioned into two, both with their own entrance and exit doors. Should a function be large enough to require both rooms, the Ashton Keynes room provides a superb location for the Bar and/or presentation of the catering.

Shared facilities include a kitchen, male and female toilets, a separate disabled toilet with baby change facilities. The Hall meets with the current standards and recommendations for disabled access.

We are very happy to recommend caterers and assist in sorting out a bar. A Temporary Event Notice is not required as the Hall is fully licensed.
