Benenden Village Hall

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

The Village Hall consists of one large hall (18m x 9m) with a stage and balcony, one small hall (8m x 6m), 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.

The village owes these facilities to generous gifts from Viscount Rothermere of Hemsted, made in 1924 in memory of two sons who died in the Great War, the Hon. Harold Alfred Vyvyan St George Harmsworth MC and the Hon. Vere Sidney Tudor Harmsworth. Their pictures hang in the foyer. The Hall (previously managed by the Parish Council as the Harmsworth Memorial Trust) is now owned and managed by the Benenden Village Trust.

The hall is used regularly by many clubs and is open to hire 7 days a week, 52 weeks of the year, subject to availability.  We even have free wifi for all hirers and guests!
