Welcome to Chapel Lawn Village Hall, South Shropshire...

...a recently refurbished and well equipped venue for hire at very reasonable rates, suitable for a variety of occasions: birthday parties and celebrations, art shows, business meetings, quiz evenings, live shows, theatre, yoga and more.

There is ample parking and a wood pellet central heating system makes it a warm winter meeting place.  We have good disabled access and the disabled toilet is big enough to double up as a changing room if necessary.  

The hall now has adjustable staging, which can be set up to suit the needs of a performance.

There is a well equipped kitchen, housing a commercial dishwasher and fridge and this can be soundproofed from the main hall with a roller blind.

The exterior has also recently been improved with level tarmac and two solid picnic benches for fine weather use.

Village Hall News Spring 2022

Like everyone else we are hoping that the troubles we went through with the pandemic are over now and we can return to more normal use of the village hall. All clubs now continue to meet regularly and a varied programme of events is planned for the spring of 2022 including:  (See What’s On page)

  • Jason Buck, a storyteller and performer who blends traditional and contemporary themes, music, vocal sound effects and pure, unadulterated fantasy.
  • Live music provided by Chapel Lawn favourites Red Madog performing with their unique combination of instruments, traditional melodies, original songs and cover versions, to deliver their own brand of ‘folk-fusion’.
  • Two performances from theatre groups sponsored by Arts Alive. Bumper Blyton provides a retro-comedy show and Box of Frogs perform improvised comedy in a Whose Line Is It Anyway style.
  • Flicks in the Sticks - we plan to begin a programme of films in September

Plans to celebrate the Queens Platinum Jubilee on 2-5 June 2022 are:

  • Thursday 2nd June  Beacon to be lit on Caer Caradoc.
  • Saturday 4th June  Street party/fete, all day BBQ, pudding competition, wheelbarrow race, tug of war and games for children.
  • Sunday 5th June  Gathering in the church with music. Children to be presented with Jubilee mugs by older folk from the village.

Thanks to Clun Town Council for a grant of £600 towards the cost of the BBQ and purchase of Jubilee mugs for the children.

The regular arts classes with Gretchen Ind and crafts classes with Constance Wood have also resumed.

*****

While the government restrictions on the use of the hall have been lifted the committee have decided to still limit the numbers using the hall to ensure that those wishing  to attend events  still feel comfortable and  are not in a crowded venue. A maximum of 60 people has therefore been put on all events. This restriction will be reviewed periodically.

The Village Hall Committee welcomes ideas for future activities and events and anyone resident in the area wishing to join the committee would be welcomed, so do get in touch with any of the committee members.

The hall will also be open for hire in the future.  No charge will be made for hall events that are advertised and open to members of the  local community.

Many thanks  to everyone who has supported the village hall over the years. We look forward to seeing you all at the exciting and interesting events planned for the rest of the year.
