Burnsall Village Hall

History of Burnsall Village Hall

Burnsall Village Hall is a community hall in the picturesque village of Burnsall, nestled in Wharfedale in the Yorkshire Dales. The beginnings of the hall you see now started with fundraising which began in 1904 for the hall and reading room. Plans were drawn up and work began in 1909. The total cost of building the hall was £557. Situated on a field, which was given by the church, known as Burnsall Glebe, the hall was opened to the public in 1909, but the reading room (now our Meeting Room) took a little longer and with more fundraising was finally opened to the public in 1914.

The hall has been a much loved community building since then and in 2007 a project was proposed to give the hall a new lease of life and bring it’s facilities up to modern day requirements in order to better serve locals and visitors alike. It was put to a public meeting in Autumn 2007 and in 2008 consent was granted through the YDNP and building work was begun, with financial help from grants and loans, into the beautifully refurbished building you see today. The whole of the building has been extended towards the back to encompass a new Green Room which doubles up as a dressing room for visiting performers and the meeting room was completely remodelled to include a full commercial kitchen to allow for better catering facilities for local & visiting events.
