Rainworth Village Hall has a fully licensed bar and full self catering facilities available, with cutlery and crockery hire if required.
The room layouts can be made to suit all requirements and can seat approximately 180 people for events such as weddings, christenings, birthdays and celebrations.
The hall has benefited from thousands of hours of voluntary support to improve its appearance. Volunteers now give up their time to clean and maintain the hall, look after the accounts, mow the lawn and a whole host of other jobs, as well as a concerted effort to promote the hall as a venue for a range of events.
The hall can also offer indoor children's parties, including disco and bouncy castle hire. These are attractively priced and are for 2½ hours. However, this period can be extended if you wish to make an afternoon of it.
History of Rainworth Village Hall
The village hall was built in 1929, originally as The Drill Hall which was used by organisations like the Girls’ and Boys’ Brigades, who were taught to march by first world war veterans.
Gymnastic equipment was used by boys who were instructed in the art of boxing and Indian club swinging. Girls were taught dancing.
The hub of village life was almost lost completely to a fire in 2004 but the parish council and management committee rallied and the new hall re-opened in August 2006, like a Phoenix from the ashes, to a grand gala opening.
