About the hall...
To book hall email desired dates to Becky at email@example.com
Stretton on Fosse Village Hall was built in 1991 and lies in the heart of the village, a stone’s throw from the Plough Inn. It is an attractive hall with 200sq mtr semi-sprung floor that is ideal for events involving dancing or children’s games. The hall has a small stage, fully fitted kitchen and separate committee room/games room for teenages to play pool or table-tennis. We have a sound system and indoor bowls/skittles which can be borrowed by hirers. There is also a data projector and screen.
The hall can hold 110 for seated functions and 220 for dancing. We have a substantial number of tables and comfortable chairs which make it an ideal venue for wedding receptions, christenings etc. It also has up-to-date facilities for disabled people, including wheelchair accessible access and a fully equipped disabled toilet.
The hall has a substantial amount of parking space and the French windows open on to a patio area which overlooks a games pitch, used informally for football and other outdoor activities. Beside the hall is a well-equipped and safe children’s play area. Regular events in the village hall include the Toddler group, meeting on Monday and Wednesday mornings, circuit training and meetings of the Silver Club.
In addition to these, the hall is much in demand for children’s parties and is regularly booked by local bands for rehearsals.
The Film Club show a monthly film and Live and Local events take place regularly at the hall – see below and upcoming events in news section.

Next Village Hall Meeting: Tuesday 5th September at 8pm
The lastest two events to raise funds for the village hall have been very successful
The Garage Sale teas, pizza and drinks raised £215
The Picnic in the Park has raised around £1000!
Thanks to all who organised and helped.
The village hall committee needs to raise funds just to keep the hall up-to-date and functioning well as the only other source of funds is the money raised from bookings. In the next few years we will need to replace all the wooden structures in the play-area (a serious amount of money!) and the sprung wooden floor in the hall will probably need to be replaced soon.
The Stretton Annual Show is on Saturday 9th September - the full list of classes and how to enter is to be found under the Annual Show section of this website.
