Guarlford Village Hall

Guarlford village hallGuarlford Village Hall can be hired at very reasonable rates. Situated in an old malthouse it has been a village hall since 1922 and a registered charity since 1949, all achieved by Guarlford residents from the past.

It has an attractive function room with exposed beams which give it a character all its own

The kitchen has a good supply of crockery and because the function room is on the first floor there is a stair lift for the disabled.

There are ceiling and wall heaters to keep the function room warm in the cold winter months.

If you would like to know more then please contact the Booking Secretary:
