Calendar of Events

One of Lavenham Community Councils main goals for the new Village Hall was to establish a centre for community activities, multiple different age groups and local organisations. Now, 9 years on, the Hall is used for over a dozen different clubs every week of the year; ranging from badminton to bowls, from tai chi to table tennis.

If you have an idea for an activities group, would like to help out with one of our societies, or are currently organising an interest group near Lavenham, then get in touch with us at the office on 01787 248599, or email us at to see if we can help out. Our facilities and availability can be found on this website, and any further information can be found through the Village Hall manager and their team of volunteer office staff.

Lavenham Village Hall

On the 1st of July 2005 Mrs Elsie Hynard officially opened Lavenham’s first village hall. “It’s a dream come true” she said as she cut the ribbon. It really was a dream come true for Elsie and many others , for some 70 odd years earlier she had been given a few pennies by her Mother for the then village hall fund.

After many false starts, the present hall project got underway following village wide consultation as part of the ‘Village Design Statement’ process. The Community Council then approached all the village clubs and societies and gained the support of Lavenham Parish an Parochial Church Councils. Things snowballed from there; the Church offered a suitable site – where the hall is situated today and a gift of the proceeds from the sale of the Church Rooms, the Parish and Babergh District Councils promised grants. A business plan was drafted, build professionals appointed, grant makers approached and importantly fundraising from the annual Carnival to the production of a calendar and a whole raft of other initiatives and a direct appeal to the public for funds got under way.

The finished building is it’s own testament but would not have been achieved without the aid and support of the following:

Lavenham Community Council – Lavenham Parish Council – Lavenham Parochial Church Council – The Diocese of St Edmundsbury – Babergh District Council – Suffolk County Council – Suffolk Environmental Trust – East of England Development Agency – Big Lottery Fund – Awards for All – Foundation for Sports and the Arts – Garfield Weston Foundation – Bernard Sunley Foundation – Fitton Trust – Defra

And last but not least, the people of Lavenham

Lavenham Library is also located within the Village Hall


The conference facilities at Lavenham village hall are modern, comfortable, clean and well equipped (AV and sound system). They are in a convenient location in the historic town of Lavenham, close to the A134 with ample parking available. The hall hire costs are very reasonable and Sue the village hall manager works hard to ensure that all your requirements are met.
The food (buffet style) organised initially through the village hall consisted of a good selection of items, was plentiful and could not be faulted.
I would recommend these facilities and I would have no hesitation in using them again in the future.

My parents and all their friends and family really enjoyed the party yesterday.
I would like to sincerely thank you for all your help and assistance in both the run up to the day and on the day itself. Please pass on my thanks to Rose and to Bryan who were also so kind and supportive and helped to make it a wonderful afternoon.
Lavenham Village Hall is certainly a lovely venue for a party and I would recommend it to anyone.

Kind Regards David

We would like to say a BIG thank you for your help with our Ipswich Hospital Charity - Connecting With Our Community Bike Ride this last weekend.
The event would not have been possible without your generous support; everyone who volunteered had such a positive attitude and gave a friendly welcome to all our riders (even those of you up at the early hours for check-in, and our lovely marshals standing in the rain) which really helped make the ride a success!
We have heard many positive comments from our riders, of which a lot are complimenting the lovely support of the volunteers. You really have gone above and beyond and we want to thank you for being a part of our ride and making it possible.
