ABOUT

A friendly village hall for the community run by local volunteers

Village Hall Front

The first village hall in Countess Wear was built in 1922 by local men returning from the war, after the locally residing Lady Granger kindly gifted the land to the community to be used for such a building. In more recent years, members of the village hall committee and local community put in huge amounts of hard work to fund raise the money needed to build a lovely, new, modern hall (no more having to worry about a tin roof!) and in 2016, the hard work paid off and our current village hall was built.

We're proud to currently offer a wide range of activities, courses and events to the local community and we're able to offer great spaces available for hire.

Reviews

It makes for a decent music venue for up to around 100 strong audience without too demanding a PA system. Have seen Mick Groves and the Spinners Legends perform at the venue in the past and hope to do so again.

We recently hired Countess Wear Village Hall to host after the funeral of a loved one. The facilities were immaculate, clean and new and the hall worked perfectly as a blank slate to build upon when styling. We'd like to thank those who volunteered and for being so kind and helpful especially when packing down and cleaning on behalf of the family.
