hall4

The Village Hall has a capacity of 120. It has a main hall, a gallery, a stage extending to 14 feet, a committee room, and ample field parking. There is a good kitchen stocked with cutlery and crockery. The toilet facilities comply with the Disability Discrimination Act. There is a hearing induction loop. In recent years the furniture, heating, and lighting have been improved. With support of Lottery grants, the committee have also provided a digital projection system.

The Village Hall is a great place for parties, wedding receptions, plays – all kinds of gatherings.

The Village Hall Committee meets every six weeks. Betty Mallows, who has cared for the Village Hall for a long time, is the Bookings Secretary.

Origins
The “new” Congregationalist chapel, built in 1845 to accommodate 500, reflected the strength of Nonconformity in the Eversdens. (The Eversdens’ Past section of the Archive has information about the Francis Holcroft plaque.) By 1937, however, membership had fallen to 22. The chapel finally closed in 1965 when its members joined Kingston chapel. The Eversdens Parish Council bought the building and restored it as The Village Hall.
