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 meets most months 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 and a sound system including a hearing loop.  It has an up-to-date kitchen and ample parking.  It is suitable for concerts, private parties or wedding receptions.  There is ample parking. It has recently been redecorated.

For enquiries and to book the Hall contact the Bookings Secretary John Coates email:  john_coates00@hotmail.com
