Facilities

Scarning Village Hall has served as a public meeting place ever since it was built in 1902. It has recently undergone major works to upgrade and extend the facilities to better serve the needs of the ever growing village of Scarning. The main hall is open galleried and can sit 80 persons to eat in comfort. See the picture on the right. The minstrel's gallery is suitable for musical entertainment and you are considering hiring the hall you might like to contact www.minstrelsgallery.com/

There is also a smaller meeting room off the main hall. The grounds to the hall are substantial and they lead through to a large garden suitable for a Bouncy Castle and the playingfield beyond.

These features all add up to the Scarning village hall being an excellent venue for functions such as weddings, family parties, public events, training days, conferences, art groups, civic meetings, health visitors, keep fit classes, members clubs, school and educational activities, church events, dance classes, and fund raising activities for local charities etc etc.....
