Houghton Village Hall - Booking Information

Before making a booking, please make sure that:

1. The date you want is at least 2 weeks away (4 weeks for larger events)
2. The date you want is available (see the calendar below)
3. You have allowed time to set up before and clear away after your event (there is a minimum 2 hour hire period)
4. Your numbers do not exceed the maximum permitted.

You will find answers to many Frequently Asked Questions here. Please browse our Facilities (this includes dimensions for the hall e.g. for bouncy castles) and the Picture Gallery. You can book the whole building or for just the Main Hall or the Meeting Room. Use of the kitchen is included in all Main Hall bookings.

Details of current hire charges can be found here, and our Terms and Conditions are here (both open in new windows).

Please note that we currently only accept bookings after 19.00 for charity and community events. If you wish to run such an event, please email us using the address at the bottom of this page. Organisers of such events, and any larger private event, will be required to complete the Special Event form at least 4 weeks before the event, to allow the Trustees time to consider the request. The Trustees decision on whether to allow an event or not is final.

To make a booking:

  1. Click on the + sign on the day of your event
  2. Fully complete and submit the online booking form
  3. Please ensure that you have considered your timings accurately.  Any changes to bookings will incur a charge

An administrator will review your form and issue an invoice (please keep an eye on your junk folder), or request further information.

Houghton Village Hall Calendar:

Please note: Houghton Village Hall is a registered charity managed and supported entirely by volunteers.  We seek to provide a rapid service, however responses will be dependant on the availability of the volunteers.   If you are not familiar with the hall we will normally invite you to meet us at the hall for a viewing and to discuss your event and its requirements.
