Benenden Village Hall

Benenden Village Hall is a bright, modern and spacious hall in the beautiful Kentish village of Benenden.

The hall is built on land and with funds from Viscount Rothermere in memorial of his two sons, the Hon. Harold Vyvyan Harmsworth and the Hon. Vere Sidney Harmsworth, who died in the Great War and whose pictures hang in the foyer. The hall is owned and managed by Benenden Village Trust, previously known as the Harmsworth Memorial Trust.

The Village Hall consists of one large hall (with a stage and balcony), one small hall, kitchen, toilets and changing rooms. There are two large car parks and an adjoining recreation ground and play area, making it a perfect location for a wide variety of activities. There is disabled access giving availability to all.
