This is not just a Village Hall... ...it is a GREAT PLACE FOR A PARTY
Is your home a bit small for the number of friends you have? Worried about wine stains on your carpet or upsetting your neighbours, not enough parking?
The Crowcombe Hall is the answer. Sprung floor to trip the light fantastic, acoustic panels to hear the music, a stage of flexible size for the band or group and tables and chairs to set out as you wish.
An excellent kitchen with dishwasher and large oven and separate warming cupboard for the food. Cutlery, china and glasses for 120. Even cooking pots and pans.
This is not just a Village Hall... ...This is an ideal venue for a kids party
It’s chucking it down with rain (as usual). The kids are bored silly and getting under your feet. You
are running out of ideas to keep them occupied (no, they are too young - to send to sea). Taking them out usually costs an arm and a leg - four ice creams will put you back a fiver.
So - why don’t you mums gang together and hire the Hall for an afternoon.
Bring your toasties to knock up the kid’s lunches, a few bottles of squash and a couple of packs of ice-cream (there is a freezer to keep it cold) and let the fun and games commence. Kids karaoke, french cricket, beetle drive, blind man’s buff, musical chairs, pass the parcel... and if it stops raining open the doors to the terrace and they can tear around outside for a bit. They would wander home tired and happy... and covered in mud!
This is not just a Village Hall... ...This is the bride’s fathers dream wedding venue
