"We have hired the hall twice now for my daughters birthday party and it really is a perfect venue. Newly decorated and refurbished to an extremly high standard with excellent on site facilities and plenty of parking too. Outstanding value for money we would highly recommend hiring the hall for a party or any other function. Quite a few of the parents commented how lovely the venue was so hopefully you will get some more business. Such a lovely village hall we are very lucky to have this on our doorstep!"

"The hall is recently renovated. It’s very neat, beautiful and good amenities. We hosted my son’s 4th birthday party there and had 35 kids plus 45 adults. There were ample of chairs, two kettles in the kitchen. It was great experience. Volunteers working at the hall were kind enough to give us the hall 10 mins before our booking time. There is enough parking spaces. It was simply a great experience and received a lot of compliments." Monica R, December 2019
"Everyone loved the hall and the natural light coming in on the day! Thanks for everything...we will be hiring the hall again sometime :)"

"I have booked and attended many a function at Victory Hall over the years and have always been pleased with the booking process, space and cleanliness. I was amazed and extremely impressed when we arrived for our end of school party this July to see a wonderful refurbishment had taken place. The hall is now modern, light and airy as well being as spotless as always. Very impressed and would highly recommend it."

"The hall was great thanks, it completely exceeded our expectations and we will definitely be back. The hall is a hidden gem so I will spread the word where appropriate."

"The Victory Hall was the ideal venue for what we needed. We are a small business that required a space to hold several meetings and it worked perfectly. The hall was extremely well kept and very reasonable and competitive in price. Everyone that I dealt with throughout the process of booking and arriving at the hall was very friendly and helpful. We will definitely be using them again in the future." PS - they have!

"The second time we used the venue was on 5th October 2013 for my grandson's christening celebration. Once again the venue proved excellent with good catering facilities and the projector room kept the older children entertained with a movie which allowed their parents to relax and enjoy the day."
