Eglingham Village Hall
The Hall is located in the centre of the village next to the bridge.
Originally it was a flour mill but in 1914 it was leased to the village, by the owners of Eglingham Hall, to provide a venue for social events. Despite it’s age the Hall is structurally in a very good state, grants from the Community Fund have provided a new heating system, new roof and kitchen refurbishment. The latest grant has seen the cloakroom facilities renovated.
For over 100 years it has continued to provide a focus for village activities, events and is also available for private hire.
The Hall consist of a single large room which can host events for up to a maximum of 100 people.
There is also has a stage which is often used for live musical performances and in the past has hosted pantomimes and plays. It also has a sound system and large drop down screen suitable for illustrated talks or films.
The Hall is used by a number of groups which meet regularly including the Women’s Institute, Craft Group and Swing/ Lindy Hop classes. For more information please see the section “Associated Organisations”.
A coffee morning is held on the first Saturday of every month between 10.00 and 12.00. It goes by the name of “Coffee and Chats” as it is intended as an opportunity for people in this scattered community to catch up with their neighbours. Everyone from both inside and outside the Eglingham area are most welcome to come along and find out what is happening locally or even find a “good read”.
The Hall plays host to a second hand book stall, for a small amount you can pick up a book and the money going to the Hall’s funds. Donations to the library are always welcome.
The Hall is available for private hire and can be booked on an hourly, half day or daily basis. The room is suitable for small meetings, lectures and social functions.
