The hall complex was built in 2004 and consists of tThe Dixon Hall (17.4m x 9.75m) and the Bruton Hall (9.75m x 6.7m). Other facilities include sports changing rooms and showers (plus disabled persons’ shower), a green room, a committee room for up to 15 people and a large kitchen with refrigerator, oven dishwasher and microwave. Cutlery, crockery and a limited number of glasses are available for your event although you are also welcome to hire these externally if you wish. We also have a projector and screens in all the main rooms, making the venue ideal for conferences, AGM's and even film nights.


 The Dixon Hall

There is a maximum capacity of 300 (including helpers and performers) or 210
if seated. We have a selection of rectangular and round tables that can be set up in a variety of ways to cater for different event requirements. This is one of the few halls in Berkshire large enough to cater for large events, from wedding receptions to go-karting parties for young children.

The hall can be set up for theatre productions, with the option to have staging with a proscenium arch or raked seating.

The recreation ground may be available for use, though not exclusively, and it is possible to hire the use of our changing rooms and showers for sports events.



 The Bruton Hall

There is a large car park adjacent to the hall, an enclosed toddler play area in addition to the recreation ground and tennis courts. Regular activities include baby and toddler group, yoga, Pilates, circuits, ballet and street dance, a play- group, folk dancing, amateur dramatics, table tennis and horticultural talks and shows. 

The popular village market also takes place here on the last Saturday of every month between March and November (excluding July and August) and the Parish Council meets on the second Tuesday of every month in the committee room.
