Welcome to our new Orchard Hall which is available to book for parties, clubs, theatre performances, exhibitions and concerts.
The Orchard Hall can be accessed via the main entrance at the side of the Village Hall. Parking is available in the new car park off Westfield (Sat Nav: OX11 0LG – please note that Westfield is permanently blocked just past Orchard Way and there is no access from Gaveston Rd.
Here you can see the hall laid out for a wedding for 80 people – the bride spoke to us afterwards and said she was “absolutely delighted” with the venue. (Since this wedding photo, we have new, much more comfortable, chairs, and fitted curtains, blinds, and in the ceiling, stage lighting.)
The hall is 14.7m x 10.5m and comes equipped with a hi-definition projector and screen, Blu-ray and CD player, stage lighting (recently installed – not shown) and microphones, both hand-held and hands-free.
Thanks to a generous grant from Biffa, we also boast fabulous tiered, retractable seating that can seat 129 people (including one row of additional chairs in front).
Without using the retractable seating the hall can hold a maximum of120-140 people or 90 seated using the rectangular tables and new chairs provided.
