Welcome to the Village Hall serving Cropthorne and Charlton.

We are pleased to announce that we are open for bookings

Update 30/05: Due to ongoing COVID uncertainty and ongoing hall maintenance, bookings will only accepted from existing hirers until further notice

(subject to the conditions below)

  • Controlled indoor events can take place with up to 50% capacity.
  • Hospitality settings will be able to open in accordance with the “rule of six”, so community cafes, coffee mornings and social clubs can take place.
  • Film shows, plays, concerts and sports matches can take place, subject to social distancing.
  • Indoor sports activities, including exercise classes, table tennis, badminton can take place.
  • Up to 30 people will be able to attend weddings, receptions, funerals, and wakes. Christenings and bar mitzvahs will be allowed.
  • Organised outdoor entertainment can take place.
  • The “rule of six” will be abolished for outdoor gatherings, replaced with a limit of 30 people.

The “rule of six” will apply to indoor events. Guidance on social contact between friends and family will be reviewed. While so-called “vaccine passports” are under consideration for allowing certain indoor venues to re-open safely at this step that would hopefully be confined to larger venues, not village and community halls.


Rule of Six – It means you can meet six people from different households in an indoor setting – or two households of any size.
