Stoke Gabriel Village Hall

The Village Hall is situated next to the Primary School on School Hill, in the centre of the village.

This is an attractive and well used community facility.

The Hall is used for shows, quizzes, talks, club meetings, etc. and also hired privately for parties, receptions and other gatherings. It has a modern, fully equipped kitchen catering for up to 100 people, and a stage with dedicated lighting, suitable for shows. The maximum capacity of the Hall is 200 persons, or 120 for a seated audience.

Car parking on the forecourt is very limited, but some additional parking is available on School Hill.

The Hall is operated as a charitable trust, managed by Officers and a committee that is made up from representatives of village organisations.
