Village Hall

Our village hall was originally built in 1922 by the Grant Meek’s family and Lord of the Manor of Manningford Bruce.

Old Village Hall
A. Grant Meek 1922

The hall was replaced in 2001 by a completely new building with funds raised by the Parish Council and the Lotteries Grant and is available for private hire as well as hosting a number of village events each year.

With a capacity for 100 standing guests or 56 seated it is a suitable size for most occasions.
