For an overall plan of the Hall see Plan of Hall
The Woodley Village Hall offers a range of different size rooms for hire for private, community and commercial functions at very reasonable rates. Hiring can be for one-off events or for regular activities. A wide range of community groups and clubs already meet at the Hall, and welcome new members to join them.
The hall is continually maintained, cleaned and improved, and provides excellent facilities for groups ranging up to 150 in number (120 if seated).
We were very pleased recently to receive the following message from a satisfied hirer: "We had a great time and the hall is really well looked after and managed." (Mrs RF)
How the hall is funded
The target is always for the hall to be self-funded, based on the revenue generated by the various clubs and other users. For details of the charges made to hall users please check out the HIRE page.
How to book an event at the hall
If you would like to book the hall for an event, whether it is for a one-off social event or a regular club, please contact the Bookings Secretary
The Woodley Room
This is the main auditorium. It seats
up to 120 when the seats are laid out in theatre style. At one end is
a raised stage, with a raked floor.
The Hall has a polished hardwood sprung floor, ideal for dancing, gymnastics, badminton and other indoor activities.
The Hall has a supply of stacking chairs and modern folding tables, so the Woodley Room can also be used for large wedding receptions, parties and similar functions.
The stage lighting is the property of the NOMADS theatre group, and use of it would only be by prior arrangement with them. Electrical sockets are available for visiting groups to connect their own lighting boards and other equipment.
The Crampmoor Room
This is the larger of the
two meeting Rooms. It has recently been extended and refurbished, with additional soundproofing, new laminate flooring and has chairs and tables available. The
maximum capacity now approximately 70, but this may depend on the room layout and
type of function.
A large serving hatch leads directly into the Hall kitchen. This room can be used in conjunction with the main hall as a servery for a large function.
The Ganger Room
A third smaller room,
the Ganger Room has recently been refurbished. It is also available for small meetings and as an additional room
if required for use in conjunction with the main hall. It has its own entrance, WC and kitchenette facilities for coffee/tea and light refreshments making. It makes an ideal committee room.
There is also a fitted kitchen, with serving hatch to the Crampmoor Room. The kitchen has a double sink and drainers, a domestic-size electric cooker and 'fridge and a microwave. A 10 litre electric hot water urn is kept in the kitchen and may be used by hirers. Crockery etc is available for hire.
The kitchen must be
shared by Hall users using the Hall at the same time. To obtain exclusive use of
the kitchen for larger functions, hirers are recommended to take the All Rooms

Rooms are available for hire for community events, private functions and parties, and appropriate commercial hire.
