Matfen Village Hall

Matfen Village Hall is a charity established for the use of the people of the parish of Matfen. The Hall is delightfully situated in the centre of the village and has been restored thus providing excellent facilities for nearly every occasion. It includes a small well equipped kitchen, music and sound system, tables and chairs to seat 80 people and an alcohol licence for an event if needed.

The hall is run by a committee and the aim is to provide regular and occasional acitivities and events for all members of the parish. The hall is well maintained and is also available for hiring by outside organisations or individuals when it is not being used by the parish. Our charges are very reasonable and depend on circumstances, such as if you are a Matfen parishioner or a charity based organisation. The hall has been successfully hired out for birthday parties, musical evenings, pre-wedding receptions, cycle races and business meetings. 

For more information and to discuss availability, repsonsibilities and cost please contact our bookings clerk, Mrs Lynda Padgett on 01661 886785.
