Barcombe Village Hall is a beautiful and modern architect-designed sustainable building. The hall has been built to accommodate a wide variety of activities and functions and can seat 120 people around tables. The main hall and stage can be used as a single split-level room or, with the aid of sound-proof stage doors, as two separate function rooms. The walls to the north and east are built substantially of glass and afford the most magnificent views down to the reservoir and across the Barcombe countryside towards the Ashdown Forest and across to the Ouse Valley. In addition, the Meeting Room provides an area for smaller groups.

We used Barcombe Village Hall to run a Planet Barcombe Eco Fair in March 2020.  The event was a fantastic success. From an organisers point of view I cannot recommend Barcombe Village Hall highly enough.  The booking system is very well organised and helpful with regard to drinks licenses etc.  The booking officer was very available to answer questions and knowledgable regarding organisational bits and bobs and key codes etc.  They went over and above in suggesting things that we may need to think of.  The hall is very well equipped for running refreshments.  We were able to run several different aspects of the fair in different spaces; stands and displays in the main hall, hands on workshops on the stage, talks in the men’s room and various stands outside as well.  

There is onsite parking and the hall is easy to find.  In addition to all the practical elements,  it has outstandingly beautiful views to enjoy through windows.

We have been coming to Barcombe Village Hall for many years & have always found the booking very easy & always considerate on their part. The area we perform in is perfect for us & the village hall itself is lovely. We go to many village halls & I can't think of any that are better, both as a lovely space & in its facilities. I can thoroughly recommend it.

I have booked Barcombe Village Hall for several events, including several talks and a Barn Dance. I have found the booking procedure straight forward and friendly. The facilities provided include enough chairs, tables and power points for easy configuration, whatever the audience size. The large drop-down screen is perfect for projected images and the sound system is useful to provide background music or to give the speaker extra volume, if required, and the acoustics are good.
The kitchen and toilet facilities are bright and clean, catering easily for a full hall of people. There is plenty of parking and double doors opening onto a useful outside space with attractive views.
