We are the new community hall in Thompson and are located on School Road between the Millennium Green and the School. We are very pleased to announce that the building is now open for bookings.
The community hall is set in a beautiful location facing onto the Millennium Green, which makes us the perfect venue for weddings and parties. Our larger hall seats up to 80 guests, the smaller seat up to 40. The partition between the two halls can be moved aside to create one large hall. Our large foyer can be used on its own (using the foyer servery for drinks and snacks) or in conjunction with one or both of the halls. The separately hired kitchen has the facilities to cater for all events. Our state of the art Audio Visual system can support a cinema, conferences, workshops and talks, theatre and live music.
Visit our gallery for up to minute news of future events and photos of events held here. We are happy to arrange a visit for you to look around the hall if you are interested in booking a one off event or a regular booking.
We are look forward to seeing you.
THOSE WHO HELPED THE HALL BECOME A REALITY – A HUGE THANK YOU
Despite many years of fund raising, the prospect of a new hall seemed a long way off. Now, thanks to the great generosity of two main benefactors, a number of donations and a lot of hard work by villagers raising funds the goal has finally been achieved. The legacy of Basil Bird, a long term village resident, enabled us to kick-start planning the new hall. We were able to finally start work on the plans following the wonderfully generous large legacy left to the village by Derek Jessup and his wife Clara specifically for hall provision.
THE DESIGN AND BUILD TEAM
The new hall’s innovative design was produced by award winning architect, Paul Lucas of Lucas Hickman Smith. The construction has been carried out by Draper & Nichols, who have won many awards for the diverse and imaginative buildings that they have worked on.
WOULD YOU LIKE TO BE A PART OF THE FUTURE?
If you are interested in becoming one of the team running the hall, please let us know. As well as additional trustees we are looking for people to join the hall management team.
