VILLAGE HALL ROOF REPLACED !

We have a new roof in place thanks to local generosity, monies from the Parish Council and grant aid from West Northants Council, and Winnick Wind Farm Trust. A huge thank you for the effort by the Village Hall Committee, trustees and many other volunteers to keep us warm and dry for a few more decades. 

   

The village hall is the centre of the community in Guilsborough, providing a home for a wide range of activities and a social space for everyone, from the very young to our oldest residents. The hall is also a meeting space, a polling station, and a party venue.  We have over 90 hours use a month and has over 10,000 visits a year.

News

The list of our regular users and their contact information is further down on this website.


We have three bookable spaces; the main hall, the small hall and a meeting room.  As most of the regular activities are during the week, the hall is mainly available for party and event bookings on Fridays and at weekends.

If you want to start up a new activity or group, please do get in touch. If you have an idea but are not sure whether it will take off, we are happy to consider a reduced hire rate to help support your idea and initial sessions.

History of the Village Hall

The "Reading Room" as it was then, was constructed in 1901 by Canon and Mrs Hitchens. By 1928 it had a library of over 200 books, a reading room and a recreation and billiards room. It became the Village Hall in 1966, once the Grammar School ceased to be used as the Village Hall. The Hall was extended in the late 1970's and the Committee Room added in 1997.
