The covered main entrance, complete with Pommie Pig
One of the
greatest assets to any village is a large and useful hall. Here at
Youlgrave we are truly blessed as we have a very large multi use hall. The
main hall seats 190 people for our very popular annual pantomime. This is
managed by having 'staged' seating which is also used by our very well
supported monthly cinema club. Various plays are put on throughout the
year, by visiting groups and our own group, on the large stage which has
excellent lighting and sound installations. The hall is very wheelchair
friendly complying with the very latest Health and Safety regulations.
The projection room at Youlgrave Village Hall
It is also
used for Welldressing catering, the Monday Club for our older villagers,
plus many other functions including attic sales, celebration parties,
badminton, painting classes, and general meetings. Events can be held in
the Main Hall, the Social Room or the Committee Room (see hall plan).
Since the hall
has been renovated over the last 3 years at a cost of over £200,000 we now
have a large well fitted kitchen including large oven, two microwave ovens,
large commercial style dish washer, a fridge and a chest freezer all
complying with the latest health regulations.
during the renovations were the fitting of two shower rooms and a large
wheelchair accessible toilet, which have made the hall very useful for
walking groups and dance groups who hire the half for long weekends.
The Committee Room now a has
fitted projection screen.
