Useful information

How do I find the Hall?

The Hall is located in School Lane, close to the junction with the B4380.

  • From the west: driving east on B4380, School Lane is the second turning on the left after the 30mph sign (if you get to The Mill at Leighton, you’ve gone too far). Entrance to Leighton Village Hall is just beyond the “triangle” on the RHS. The car park entrance is through the black, metal gate.
  • From the east: School Lane is on the right just past the Mill at Leighton. Then similar details as above.

How do I gain access to the Hall?

  • There is a gated access to the village hall car park. This is padlocked, the code for which is provided when the booking is confirmed.
  • Access to the Hall itself. Please look for the key safe by the RHS door to the kitchen. The code for this is the same as the car park gate.

Please see the End of Session Checklist

Any issues with the Hall?

Please let us know if there are any issues, we need to deal with e.g. supplies have run out, something isn’t working etc. There is a defects book in the kitchen for recording this.

Do I need a licence?

It is assumed by the Hall that all bookings are private in nature i.e. there is no entrance charge. However, if this is not the case, or you will have a paid bar and / or live musical entertainment or other licensable activities, then it is the booker’s responsibility to obtain the relevant licence(s).

Use of bar, catering etc

The Village Hall is unable to directly provide any support to your event, for example setting up, staffing of the bar, table service etc. If you require these services, then please indicate on the booking form what your requirements are and we will pass this on to The Mill at Leighton, who will hopefully be able to assist.
