Thornton-le-Beans Village Hall
Our friendly village lies 3 miles south of Northallerton, North Yorkshire, just east of the main Thirsk road (A168). The Hall is the former village school at the top of School Lane (DL6 3SN), first converted in the 1950s. We demolished and rebuilt the original kitchen and toilet block in 1999, and then completely refurbished everything else in 2005-12 – including installing double-glazing throughout. We recently added solar PVC panels to the roof as well, saving fossil fuels and money.
We now offer a safe, warm, well-equipped venue with under-floor heating and off-road parking. It is ideal for committee meetings, courses, adults’ or children’s parties, wedding receptions, social evenings, charity sales and many other events.
We have one main room that holds up to 75 people seated or 120 standing. There is a smart modern kitchen with a serving hatch to the main room. There are no steps anywhere in the building, and there is a disabled toilet, so access is not a problem. For more details see our Facilities and Charges page.
The Hall is in high demand but we always welcome new private hires. Please visit our Bookings Calendar page first to check whether the date you have in mind is available, and then contact us to discuss your requirements.
Our Village Hall NEWS items now include the October 2017 100 Club winners and details of North Country Theatre’s visit on Wed 11 October.
Every August the Hall Committee organises the Thornton-le-Beans Village Show and Children’s Sports in the field at the top of the village. This is open to all, especially those with families. In 2016 the Show took place on Sat 13th August, and was a great success. For more details including all class results and prizewinners see our Village Show page.
We already have many regular events including Bridge, Whist, Pilates, Photography and Craft and Chat. If you are interested in joining any of those sessions full details are on the Contacts page.
