Broadhempston Village Hall
Our purpose-built Village Hall was opened in December 2015. The Pavilion, Playing Field and Tennis Court are situated at Headlands, half a mile outside of the village, and are currently available for hire.
There is easy pedestrian access to the new Village Hall from the centre of the village and the picturesque 14th century parish church of St. Peter and St. Paul. There are two public houses in the village. The hall has its own 22 space car park with two bays for disabled parking. For large events additional parking can be arranged.
All areas have underfloor heating. The main hall has a beech wooden sprung sports floor to British Standards 7004 Part 4 and all other areas have vinyl Polysafe flooring. The building is wheelchair accessible and is fully compliant with equality legislation for public buildings.
