Memorial Hall

Hire Rates and Booking Information           



As I am sure you all know, the Memorial Hall will be closed in line with the new government restrictions for this Lockdown #3 with immediate effect.

However should there be any change in the rules and we are able to reopen the hall, I will of course let you know.

Let us all hope that at the end of this period of lockdown we will be able to return to some sort of normality, especially with the hope & expectation of the roll out of the vaccine for so many of our population.


We will look forward to welcoming you back to the hall when it is safe to do so, until then please take care.

Best wishes

About the Hall

The Memorial Hall was built in Idmiston Road, Porton to commemorate parishioners who gave their lives in two world wars. It opened in 1959.


Although the exterior is not an architectural gem, the interior is warm, light, clean and modern, with facilities for disabled people.


There is a good sized car-park. Volunteers manage the hall and we pay a cleaner and grass cutter.


There is a timetable for the Groups that use the hall, it is also well used by private hirers especially for childrens's birthday parties, wedding anniversaries and Christening celebrations.


Main Hall capacity:

With tables and chairs - 80

Theatre style seating (no tables) - 100

With minimal furniture - 120


Small Hall capacity:

With tables and chairs - 25

Theatre style seating (no tables) - 40 to 50


As confirmed by the Booking Secretary, the Parish Council meeting arrangment of tables in a horse shoe shape with chairs for 15 Councillors and 1 Clerk is acceptable, and allows for a further 20 to 25 chairs to be available for members of the public.
