Introduction
Priston Village Hall is one of the key hubs of  Priston social life.  It is located on the village green, next door to the Ring O' Bells public house and is within walking distance of the Church of St. Luke & St. Andrew.  See map for details.  The Village Hall is run by a committee of residents and representatives of local groups.  It is registered as a charity.

Hire of the Hall

The Hall is available for hire and is licensed as a place of public entertainment.  The building is equipped with a stage, kitchen (with microwave, cooker,  tea-urn, crockery & cutlery), lavatories (including one equipped for disabled users), trestle tables and chairs. The main space (excluding stage) is 11.6 metres by 4.9 metres.  The hall can cater for parties of up to 100 people, or 60-70 people seated.

Limited parking is available in the Village Hall Car Park (included in hire charge).

Organisers of events at which alcohol will be available for sale need to agree this when booking the hall, and will also need to apply for a Temporary Events Notice
