Bourtons Village Hall

The Bourtons Village Hall is the old Methodist chapel on Main Street in Great Bourton and can be found opposite the Swan Lane turning (just beyond the church if heading towards Cropredy). You can read the history of the village hall here.  The Hall is owned by Bourtons Parish Council, which leases the Hall to the Village Hall Management Committee for a peppercorn rent.  The Committee also controls the bookings. (Contact: Maggie MacAngus on 01295 750497). The chairman of the Village Hall Management Committee is  Geoff Tyler who can be contacted on  e-mail here.

The Hall is used in a number of ways, and is available for regular bookings and one-off events.  Hiring and booking information is shown below.

The rates for hiring the hall are as follows:

  • For residents:  £6 per hour; £24 for half a day and £48 for a full day.
  • For non-residents: £13 per hour; £50 for half a day and £95 for a full day.

Insurance & Equipment

The Hall is insured for 40 people (seated) and 50 people for standing events and for 15 people in the kitchen.  The kitchen is fully equipped with crockery, cutlery, kettles, a microwave, a refrigerator and a warming oven but there are no cooking facilities. There are tables and chairs in the hall area to be used as required for your event.

New committee members would be very welcome!   We are a friendly bunch, and the workload is far from arduous.  If you’d like to find out what is involved, come along to the AGM, (usually held in December) email or call Maggie MacAngus on 750497
