The Main Hall

The spacious main hall has a high ceiling and is able to seat up to 200 theatre style and up to 180 at tables depending on whether a buffet table or dancing is required. The hall makes an ideal hire venue for weddings, concerts, social functions, clubs, exhibitions and dances.

A stage is available at the far end of the hall and there are doors leading to the green area to the south of the hall. Plus a serving hatch from the kitchen and doors leading to the The Wallace room which is small function room and bar area.

Marquee

It is possible to fit a marque in the main hall to create a more intimate feel suitable for a wedding function or birthday party. Please contact us for details as the fittings for attaching the marquee are for a specific marquee.

Decorating

As well as being able to fit a marquee here are many hooks provided around the main hall and reception area, to enable decorations to be hung. Please contact us for further details.

We do ask that no sellotape or bluetac is stuck to the emulsioned walls, but there are many hooks provided around the main hall and reception area, to enable decorations to be hung.

The Wallace Room: Bar & Small Function Room

Separate from the main hall, this smaller room can be hired independently and includes the village hall bar.

There is a door to The Wallace Room from the foyer and also double doors into the main hall.

The Wallace room contains the bar.

The Kitchen

Accessed from The Wallace Room and the main hall, with a serving hatch to the main Hall, the kitchen is full equipped with:

  • fridge
  • kettle & hot water urn
  • electric oven and hob.

Other facilities

The foyer and toilets have all been refurbished to a very high standard in June & July 2021. As well as  ladies and gentlemen toilets there is a disabled toilet.

Off the main hall is a small gated patio area which leads onto the large village playing field, with play equipment for all ages of children. Of particular value in Blakeney is the large Village Hall car park.

Catering

The area has some excellent caterers and we can supply a list of caterers familiar with the hall who can offer anything from a simple buffet to a full dinner or hog roast / BBQ. Details available upon request.

If used, the hall kitchen must be left clean and tidy unless a post hire clean has been agreed and paid for.

The Village Hall Bar

Blakeney Village Hall holds a full Premises Licence which includes the sale of alcohol. Bar staff are fully trained and experienced and take the four licensing objectives stated in the Licensing act 2005. (The prevention of crime and disorder; Public safety; The prevention of public nuisance;The protection of children from harm) very seriously.

The Hall has a well stocked bar and we are happy to work with the hirer to ensure we offer the right mix of wine, draught bitter, lager and spirits for the event. The bar can only be opened by prior arrangement and bar bookings should be made at the time of booking the hall.

If the bar is not required a corkage charge may be made. Only the licensed village hall bar staff may sell alcohol in the village hall. The hirer can only provide alcohol to guests free of charge and not whilst the bar is open. Only alcohol purchased at the village hall bar can be consumed outside on the playing field. The hire of glassware can be arranged for events not using the bar.
