Click to view more photos of the hallOrsett Village Hall is situated at the junction of High Road and Mill Lane, Orsett, Essex. [View map]. It was built in 1972, with a meeting room Annexe added in 2006.

The hall measures approx. 11 x 16 metres with a maximum capacity of 150 persons (130 comfortably) and parking for 30 cars. Additionally, there's a fully fitted kitchen, a raised stage, a bar room, men's, ladies and disabled toilets, baby change table, cloakroom, meeting room and safe outdoor play area for children. You can see photos and find out more about the room sizes and facilities by visiting the Photos page.

The front entrance now has a very accessible push button entry door, wide enough for wheelchairs and double buggies. The entrance, kitchen door and fire exit doors were upgraded in 2015; we were very fortunate to secure funding towards the hall improvements and repairs from Veolia North Thames Trust.

The hall is home to Orsett Playgroup, various clubs including Orsett Women's Institute, badminton and indoor bowls, and is hired on a regular basis by religious, dance, theatre and fitness groups. You can find out more about who uses the hall by visiting the What's On page.

If you're looking for a new venue for your club, Orsett Village Hall now has midweek slots available in the afternoon/early evening and Sunday evenings are also available for weekly hire. If you are interested in setting up a new or established club at our village hall on a regular weekly basis we would love to hear from you. For further information please come along to the hall on a Monday evening between 7:45 and 8:30 pm (not Bank Holidays) to discuss with committee members.

The hall is available to hire on Friday nights, Saturdays and Sundays for weddings, dances, parties and other events.  The Annexe can be hired at the same time as the hall for an additional fee if required.

The meeting room (the Annexe) is available to hire at the same time as the main hall if required, but not on its own.

The hall is leased from the local council and is run by a Management Committee made up of local residents, mostly volunteers. They oversee the day to day running of the hall and manage bookings, cleaning, repairs and maintenance. You can find out more about how your local hall is run by reading the minutes and the constitution. If you would like to have a say in the running of the hall or have any ideas you'd like to share please come along to the AGM or drop us an email. You'll find more information on the Committee Members page.
