Our historic village hall was once a factory in East London before a local villager acquired the building frame and transported it to Doddinghurst, where members of the community got together to erect it in its current position.

Built by the community, for the community, it has hosted many memorable events throughout the years and is currently maintained by volunteers to ensure it continues to provide a community service for years to come.


After undergoing a complete refurbishment in 2018, our hall provides the perfect backdrop to any event.

Amenities include:

  • A full kitchen with gas oven with electric hobs, fridge/freezer, dishwasher, tea urn and crockery

  • Tables including:

    • 18 number measuring 4 ft x 2.5ft

    • 17 number measuring 5 ft x 2.5ft

  • 140 chairs

  • Contained garden area, backing onto the public fields

  • Fully equipped stage 

  • 64 car parking spaces plus signed dedicated disabled spaces
