Yaxham Village Hall is a classic community hall built by the community in 1987 and run by an enthusiastic team of volunteers.

It's an ideal venue for all types of social events, weddings, birthday parties, dances. The floor of the main hall has just undergone renovation and now looks in sparkling new condition.

The hall has a fully equipped kitchen and a licensed bar run by friendly staff and is also licensed for performances and music.  In addition to the main hall there is the David Myhill Room that can accommodate 50 people and the newly set up Community Room which is an ideal place for coffee mornings, tea parties, social get togethers and small meetings

Our brand new bar facilities are designed to meet your needs for any occasion, if you have special requirements, we will do our best to satisfy your wishes.

There is a large playing field available for those occasions where outside facilities are needed.

Refurbishment Project


Work has now been completed installing compliant disabled toilets next to the David Myhill Room, complete refurbishment of the ladies and gents toilet facility and upgrade of the baby changing facility. The Kitchen floor has been upgraded to align with health and safety requirements. The whole electricity system has been changed over to 3 phase supply, resulting in a safer and greater capacity to cope with the demands that are required today. Fire alarm system has been installed to make the hall fully compliant with today's safety requirements. We have also installed a new keypad entry system, so that hirers are given a code to gain access to the Hall. This new set up was recommended by our insurers.

The next stage in our plans will be to refurbish the main hall and we will be announcing plans in the New Year

The total project cost has exceeded £50,000 with funds being raised from Breckland Council, Yaxham Parish Charity and the Paul Bassham Foundation.

These improvements make Yaxham Village Hall an even more attractive proposition for your events and the community



Trustee Responsibility

The Trustees will in future concentrate on our wonderful facilities and ensuring that we are offering the best we possibly can, taking account of changing needs and demands. Our role will not involve us in organising events. We are more than happy to offer our support for appropriate community events and will give the best encouragement that we can to individuals who wish to organise anything.
