About the Village Hall

Newport Village Hall is a large community hall in the heart of this delightful historic Essex village. It is conveniently situated 100 metres from Newport railway station on the Liverpool Street to Cambridge line, as well a local bus stop. The Hall has a fine location over looking the large Common. There is parking for up to 30 cars in the Hall's own car park with additional spaces nearby. The Hall has disabled access and facilities.

The spacious main hall has a substantial stage and features a sprung dance floor. There is a modern well equipped kitchen behind the stage and a bar annexe to one side. There are 100 chairs and 14 large folding tables (182x68cm) and 8 smaller folding tables (91x76cm). The new meeting room, The Marion Faber Room, can be hired separately from the main hall and will comfortable accommodate for up 36 people in lecture room configuration.

The Hall is extensively used by a wide range of clubs and organisations covering all age groups as well as being hired for private functions. Some of the regular user groups with contact details are listed under Activities. It is estimated that over 1,800 people use the Hall each month.
