About Caryford Hall

The Hall is managed by a small, friendly committee, who work hard to keep it running smoothly. We host a wide range of groups from Arts to Sport groups, small and large groups of local people as well as running many events ourselves.

An ambitious scheme to extend the hall - the first stage giving us an impressive new kitchen has now been completed and, we are progressing plans to build the next phase - a new meeting room.

We hope the Hall will be coming out of the current Covid restrictions soon, so that we can start our full programme of bookings and events again.
