    Lawshall Village Hall is an ideal venue for wedding receptions, meetings, conferences, dances and parties large and small.

    Do you or your company need a Stage?  Do you require a full ‘Sound System’ with a Hearing Loop facility?  From November 2017 we also have a projector and screen that can be booked for use.

    Do you wish to seat 100 people on comfortable chairs?   Do you want a place for an adult or childrens party?   Do you want to organise a Table Top Sale? Do you want a well-equipped kitchen? Do you require full facilities for the disabled?

    There is plenty of space, both inside and on the grass outside.

    If you need a marquee, or outside catering facilities, these can easily be arranged.

    Laura Williams, Landlady at the Swan Public House is happy to advise on obtaining a temporary alcohol licence if needed and may be able, by arragement, to supply a bar for special events.

    History of the Hall

    Lawshall Village Hall, originally built in the 1970s, was extended and upgraded between 2007 and 2009 with many up-to-date features being added. Following a flood (due to excessive rain) in September 2014 a new and re-levelled floor was laid, enhancing the experience of carpet bowlers, and the opportunity taken to update guttering and to redecorate.

    Covid in 2020 required further changes with a new dishwasher, enhanced exit ramp, stylish blinds instead of curtains and repainting of the tired interior walls. The external frieze has also been replaced and the planters and hanging baskets provide  good colour in the summer.

    The Management Committee invite you to take a look at the refurbished Hall which we believe offers the best overall facilities of any Village Hall in the area.

    There is a large grassed area and big car park. Hire Rates are very competitive and include all lighting, gas for the kitchen and central heating when applicable. A projector and Wifi are also available
