The Orchard Hall

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.

The hall is 14.7m x 10.5m and comes equipped with a hi-definition projector and screen, Blu-ray and CD player, lighting bars for stage lighting (lights not installed) and microphones, both hand-held and hands-free.

Thanks to a generous grant from Biffa, we also boast fabulous new tiered, retractable seating that can seat 129 people (including one row of additional chairs in front).

If you would like to use the retractable seating, you will need to specify this at the time of booking and be trained.
Here is a video of the retractable seating in operation.

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.

Please refer to our Frequently Asked Questions page for more detailed information about the Orchard Hall.
