Welcome to the Garrigill Village Hall Website

After many years of fundraising, 2012 saw Garrigill Village Hall closed for major refurbishment. We now have a fully modernised building, warm, light and welcoming. The Hall enhances village life with a pleasant environment for meeting, interacting and strengthening community ties. From hosting live bands, parties and theatre to film club and supper evenings, the Hall plays host to a multitude of events and is available for private hire, overnight stays and daytime use. We also offer bunkroom and camping facilities as well as electric bike hire.

A big thank you to the Garrigill Estate for your generous donations over the past four years towards the development of the Hall. Your kind support is very much appreciated.
