Village halls in Gloucestershire
Chedworth Village Hall
Chedworth Village Hall, which was opened in 1976, replaced an old YMCA Hut that had served the village well since 1919. Our recently re-decorated spacious hall, with parking for 80 cars and free super-fast wifi has, frustratingly, been closed due to Covid restrictions. The wide variety of activities which would normally be taking place include dinners, talks, conferences, indoor games, especially table tennis, exercise and fitness classes. The large rear projection screen has enabled us to show films on a regular basis as well as live sporting events and live theatre. We are a popular venue for weddings and all events can be supported by the bar. It is therefore, disappointing that we have had to be closed to all users except the Pre-School which continues to run in its own rooms, and look forward to the time when we can open for business again.
Guiting Power Village Hall
2021 marks the 60th anniversary of the current Village Hall at Guiting Power. The Hall is on the site of the old Concert Hall and on completion was gifted to the Village in 1961 by Raymond Cochrane. He acquired Guiting Manor and set about restoring the character of the village eventually setting up the Trust which continues to this day. He married Sally Latimer shortly after and with the villagers built the current Village Hall as a project with his new wife. Sally was an actress and director of some repute and we owe the stage and theatre setup at the Hall today to her inspiration. Sally organised her friend and protege Carryl Jenner owner of the Mobile Theatre, to open the new Hall with a staging of “Thunder Rock”. This marked the last ever performance by the Mobile Theatre which found a permanent home becoming the Unicorn Theatre for Young People. The Hall continues to provide a focal point for the village offering a meeting place, indoor sport and exercise, venue for the fete and fireworks as well as a venue for live music theatre and pantomime. The Hall is managed by a small committee of volunteers and is available partiess, wedding receptions and commercial hire.
St Mary Magdalene, Baunton
Our ancient Church is the only meeting place in the community. The PCC are working hard to create a multi-use space supported by the PC. We hope monthly and festival worship will resume soon in this beautiful building. Signs of Spring are appearing already!
