About Rockbourne Village Hall




Layout

A major refurbishment in 2007 included a ground floor extension providing new kitchen, WCs, Committee Room and Store Room. The entrance to the hall is approached up a ramp designed for wheelchair access. The large entrance hall gives ground floor access to the Main Hall (with Store Room off), Kitchen, Committee Room, and modern WCs including one with facilities for the disabled. A staircase by the front entrance gives access to the Gallery above the Committee Room.

Capacities

For dinner the main hall can seat a maximum of 72 with a further 24 in the gallery.
Theatre style, the hall can seat a maximum of 86.
For a party, the hall and gallery combined standing capacity would be 200.
