Colvend Public Hall was built in 1933 by fund raising within the local community. It is owned by the community and is operated on their behalf by a management committee, supervised by a group of trustees. The Committee normally meets most months, though latterly by Zoom, but on different times of the month to accomodate the various committee members. Everybody in the community is entitled and welcome to attend any meeting - just come along.  Every local organisation is entitled to a place on the management committee. 

The Hall has a stage, excellent acoustics free WiFI, and a sound system including a hearing loop.  It has an up-to-date kitchen.   It has recently had the floor stripped and resealed.  With the redecoration that took place last year the Hall is looking particularly attractive.  It is suitable for concerts, private parties or wedding receptions.    There is ample parking.
