Wadhurst Commemoration Hall
|Available for hire, the Wadhurst Commemoration Hall is a popular village centre venue for concerts, family parties and local events. Built after World War I and now fully refurbished, it is equipped for modern flexible use, with a newly renovated kitchen and men's, ladies' and disabled toilet facilities.
The hall can seat up to 196 on the main floor and is used for exhibitions, sales, sporting activities, private parties, plays and concerts. It is fully licensed for the sale of alcohol and the performance of live or recorded music.
The well-equipped kitchen has a large gas cooker, warming cabinet, larder fridge, tea and coffee making facilities, crockery and cutlery. A wide serving counter faces into the hall for easy-access catering.
The stage is fully equipped for dramatic productions and there is a small green room. The Wadhurst Dramatic Club is happy to allow its lighting and sound system to be used by other organisations, subject to prior agreement.
The Wadhurst History Society has a 3m by 3m front projection screen, which can also be made available under appropriate terms.
Hire charges for the hall are from £40 to £60 per session [morning, afternoon or evening] - full details on the booking form.
The hall has a small car park in front and nearby access to the main Wadhurst car park behind the Greyhound public house. The hall is well used for family celebrations and by many local groups - for regular sessions by the History Society, badminton club, a monthly farmers' and crafts market, and keep fit classes, and for occasional events by the Dramatic Club, the Brass Band, Rotary, Gardeners and many others.
