Mitford Village Hall was originally made up of two ex-military wooden huts, standing on brick plinths known as ‘The Hut’ or ‘The Television Hut’. The name arises from the fact it was in this building that the first television set in the village was installed, to watch the Coronation of Her Majesty the Queen in 1953. In the 1980s the smaller of the wooden huts was removed and rebuilt in brick, creating a meeting room along with a kitchen and toilets. A comprehensive programme of refurbishment commenced in spring 2009.
You will find the hall light, friendly and inviting. It has a new air-conditioning system to ensure comfort both in winter and summer and new flooring. It also has a refurbished kitchen area as well as modern toilet facilities. The hall has car parking, is accessible and enjoys some green open space as well as a safe children’s play area. Many local clubs and societies, as well as the Parish Council, make use of it on a weekly or monthly basis and it’s also the location for the Christmas Fair and various charity coffee mornings.
You can rent the rooms and facilities at Mitford Village Hall by the hour (cost is currently £10per hour) or £60 for the day. It’s an ideal venue for children’s parties, dances, special celebrations, christenings, meetings and even off-site work events for local businesses. It has a stage if needed. Pictures can be seen in the gallery and rates are very competitive.
