South Leigh Village Hall, Church End, South Leigh, Oxfordshire OX29 6UR
Our beautiful South Leigh Village Hall is perfect for all occasions; wedding receptions, parties, and anniversaries. Our village hall makes a stunning setting for any occasion – a blank canvas for you to make into your perfect venue.
South Leigh Village Hall was built in the 1860’s as a National School and remained as an infant/junior school until it closed in 1946 after which it became the village hall circa 1950. As late as 1970 the WI complained that nettles were a hazard for ladies using the toilet that was situated “down the garden”. That situation was later rectified by adding ladies and gents toilets to the rear of the main building.
Soon after the start of the new century the hall had become so damp, mostly because it did not have cavity walls, that it was virtually unusable and the decision was made to have a massive fundraising effort to make it a Village Hall to be proud of. With the help of a relatively small loan from the District Council, £300k was raised by the villagers. The kitchen was then demolished and a new one built. New toilets, a storeroom and an extension to the main hall were added with bifold doors looking out onto the patio and garden.
In October 2013 our MP Prime Minister David Cameron opened our “new” hall since when it has become popular as a venue for wedding receptions, birthday parties and anniversaries.
