Monxton & Amport Village Hall

 You can check the hall availability here>

General Information:
The Monxton and Amport village hall was built in the mid-1960s – a modern building with facilities for events for up to 100 people. It is an excellent venue for local clubs and societies, events, family celebrations and children’s parties.  It has a small stage, which is ideal for small productions.  An extensive refurbishment programme has been carried out over the last five years and substantial improvements were made including a complete kitchen upgrade, new lighting system to both the hall and the kitchen, ninety new chairs, twelve new tables, resurfaced hall floor and new double glazed windows and doors. The hall has also recently been redecorated throughout with new black-out blinds for all the windows.

The hall also has disabled access, with a custom-made ramp outside the hall, and brand new disabled toilet facilities inside. There are also baby changing facilities.

The hall is licensed for private and public events between of 10.00 and 24.00 hrs unless special permission has been granted by TVBC and Monxton and Amport Hall Management  Committee. There is an Entertainments and Stage Play Licence, but no alcohol license.

Parking:
There are 4 parking places directly outside the Hall with additional parking spaces along the road.  We have now improved the parking outside Monxton Manor and there is enough space for a further 5-6 cars. There is overflow parking in the Black Swan car park just beyond the bridge. We politely request that hall users to not turn in residents’ driveways.

Availability:
Hall availability can be viewed here. There is a Bookings Diary displayed outside the hall on the notice board, but this is only updated at the beginning of each month so it may not be absolutely up to date. Please check with the Bookings Secretary if you are unsure.

Alcohol Licence:
The cost of an alcohol licence is approx £20.  Please note that if you are operating a “bring your own” or “alcohol supplied for free” private event, you do not need a licence. Test Valley Borough Council require applications for an Alcohol Licence to be sent to them 14 working days before the Event.

Hall Dimensions: 19m x 10m (incl. stage)
