THE FRIENDLY VILLAGE HALL

Welcome to

Little Hadham Village hall

We are a registered charity with all funds raised going towards the upkeep and improvement of the hall for the benefit of the local and wider community.  The trustees and management committee are all volunteers.  

This year we will be replacing windows and doors and continuing to fundraise and make grant applications where we can, for further refurbishment.  

 

Need a regular or one off hire?

We uniquely have a low cost club starter option to encourge new activites into the hall to help you get established and allow you to build the club without heavy upfront financial commitments.  To find out more, please contact the Bookings Secretary. Email: booking@littlehadamvillagehall.com


Our facilities

We offer a welcoming and well equiped hall with a stage, theatre lighting, large cinema screen and surround sound.  We also have a modern bright fitted kitchen and a meeting room available for separate hire.


Little Hadham Village Hall has a large car park with disabled parking and level access making our hall easily accessible to wheelchair users.


See calendar and bookings page for more details.


Scroll down this page to find upcoming events and regular weekly & monthly activities.


Also see Clubs and Activities and Calendar and Bookings tabs for 'What's On' details.


Little Hadham Village Hall is in need of vital refurbishment if it is to continue to provide an essential community facility for the village.  The cost of the work that we need to do is well beyond the resources that the hall possesses and we are therefore raising funds from sources including through East Herts Lottery.

Every ticket bought means the project is another step further forward.

Thank you for your support and good luck!

Our sincere thanks to our grantors, East Herts District Council, Garfield Weston Foundation, Low Carbon Workspace, Clarion Futures and HCF.  Our sincere thanks also goes to generous local business support, residents and hard working volunteers.


Without this support the refurbishment works acheived so far, would not have been possible.  


There is still much to do and the Village Hall Management Committee will continue to organise events and apply for grant funding to enable the second phase of refurbishment, which will include further window and door replacement,  further redecoration and maintenance.


Thank you to everyone who has shown their support in 2021. We look forward to opening your newly refurbished hall in January 2022.
