The Village Hall

Long Marston Village Hall

Long Marston Village Hall was officially opened in May 1985, after a sustained community effort to bring it into being. Many residents gave their time, skills and resources to build and complete the Village Hall, and it stands as a testament
to village life.

The Hall is situated off Butt Hedge, in the centre of the village, off the Angram road. At the village crossroads turn left, if coming from York, and follow the signs to Village Hall.

The Hall is surrounded by superb playing fields where the Long Marston Cricket Club play their home games. The hall has changing rooms and toilets for cricket and football. The generous car park has recently been resurfaced and there is an enclosed children’s play area. There are plans to refurbish the outdoor basketball court. The Main Hall is spacious and can comfortably accommodate over 150 people. The adjoining lounge area, including a full size pool table, is useful for smaller groups up to 40, or as additional space. The fully licensed bar serves both areas. There is also a substantial kitchen with fridge, microwaves and a newly purchased oven.

Over the years the Hall has been home to diverse activities and local clubs including indoor bowls, badminton, pool, tennis, darts and dominoes. Currently, the main users are Long Marston Pre-School and Playgroup, Archery Club, Cricket Club, Line Dancing, Zumba and Pilates Classes, YCA, Probus and Over 60’s Club . Details and contacts for these groups are available from the secretary.

The Village Hall is a registered charity [number 525030] and is run by a dedicated committee of volunteers. These committee members all support the aim of the Village Hall to benefit community life and provide opportunity for recreation in the village and for the surrounding areas. New volunteers are always welcome to share in the care and promotion of this fantastic Village Hall which Long Marston is privileged to have.
Pre - School - Long Marston Pre - School was founded in 1986 and is since then a place where children aged 2 to 5 thrive.
