It’s Village Halls Week – the sixth annual campaign, highlighting England’s 10,000+ village halls, so we thought we would shine a spotlight on our community hub.
Caldecott Village Hall is a core part of Caldecott village life, and has been home to many events, meetings and celebrations over the years. From exercise classes, childrens’ clubs, coffee mornings, polling stations, WI and Parish Council meetings, to theatrical shows, fetes, quizzes, award ceremonies, royal celebrations, wedding receptions, feasts, craft markets, barn dances and fashion shows. If only walls could talk!
The Hall was built in 1955 on the site of an old public house, using materials from the dismantled houses of Eyebrook dam workers. The building is managed tirelessly by our Village Hall Committee who fundraise and maintain a bright and airy main hall, kitchen, stage and adjoining outdoor green.
Caldecott Village Hall provides a blank canvas for your private functions and is a practical space for regular clubs and classes. For more details and hire prices, please take a look at the Caldecott Village Hall page on the Caldecott Village Hall page.
The Village Halls Week campaign is run by Action With Communities. It’s their sixth annual campaign looking at how village halls can provide warm, welcoming and inclusive spaces; something which is especially important as the country faces a cost-of-living crisis. Halls are encouraged to hold open days and share their stories on social media.
