The hall was built in 1980 and extended with the help of the Lottery funding in 2003 on land given to the Castle Caereinion Recreation Association, a registered charity.
Over the years, our Community Hall has been the scene of some great and very varied events, from Wedding Receptions to Kids' Birthday Parties, from Rock Gigs to Ballroom Dancing. And this is not to forget the many sporting activities (Badminton and Short Mat Bowls, to name a couple) and club and society meetings. The Main Hall itself is large and can accommodate about 300 seated, as for a pantomime or concert, and about 200 for a party, so it's an ideal place for almost any kind of event.
The Hall consists of a large main hall, a meeting room (for about 20 people and with its own access) and a conservatory with a small kitchen/servery. A larger kitchen is attached to the main hall. There is also a small social room, with separate access, with its own toilet and sink. Inside the Hall is possibly its most arresting feature - a Millenium Mural showing the whole Community area with its various buildings and some of its characters, all painted by local artist Richard Oke.
Outside the Hall there are two playing fields, used for both school and community activities, the whole being in pleasant surroundings with views of hills and meadows.
The Hall has a full premises licence for music, dancing and most legal activities, including the sale and consumption of alcoholic drinks (conditions apply). For enquiries and bookings contact Margaret on 01938 850377 or click here for more details
