Welcome to Harwell Village Hall!

Harwell Village Hall – Charity Number 1157858

About our halls

Ours is a vibrant and well-used Village Hall, originally built in the late 1920s and situated in the heart of Harwell village in the Thames Valley, Oxfordshire, just a few minutes from Didcot.

The hall is the focus of many groups from the village and the surrounding area who meet weekly or monthly in either the Orchard or Cherry Hall for a variety of pursuits including fitness and dance for both young and old, Arts and Crafts, Woodturners, Harwell WI, Short Mat Bowls, various clubs for toddlers and young children such as Fun Club, our youth theatre group Gobo Theatre and the Harwell Parish History Group.  It is also the local Polling Station and the Parish Council have an office by the foyer entrance.

The hall is available to individuals to hire for adult or children’s parties as well as other social events.  A registered charity, we are funded by the revenue from this hire which is used to cover the cost of insurance, repairs, heating, etc.

Covid-19 – staying safe at the hall

As of 27th January 2022  face coverings are no longer compulsory at the village hall.   In line with government advice, we recommend that you consider wearing one in crowded, enclosed spaces where you may come into contact with people you do not normally meet.

There will continue to be cleaning materials and hand sanitiser available and we have also left the notices in place about social distancing and the wearing of face coverings as a reminder as to what precautions can be taken if users so desire.

We would ask that hirers and users help keep everyone safe by still providing adequate ventilation for their activity, clean down touchpoints and still take their rubbish away with them.

There will no longer be any Covid 19 specific Terms & Conditions, but there is an additional clause added to the general Terms & Conditions referring to Public Health.

Village Hall Redevelopment Project

In 2017 the Trustees completed a £1.3million project to extend and refurbish the Village Hall and I am sure you will agree it looks splendid!  For details of how we did it, take a look at the Hall Redevelopment Project pages.
