Village Hall ForecourtKingsdown Village Hall, built in 1843 as the village school, was converted for use as a village hall and opened for business on the 1st April 1952. The hall, situated at the centre of the village in a conservation area, forms an essential base for local groups, public events and private functions for the community of Kingsdown, near Deal, Kent (click here for a map).

The main hall has kitchen and toilet facilities, including a disabled toilet, installed in 2010. The lower hall (originally the cloakroom for the school in 1924) has been converted to a small meeting room with tea and coffee-making facilities.

Both halls and the forecourt (with a new safe play surface) are available for private hire at competitive rates - visit the Booking Info page to download a booking form with our terms and conditions of hire, and to view more details including our full postal address and the terms of our Premises Licence. For a brief overview of how the hall is run and funded, click here. We have attained management competancy Hallmark Awards from ACRE (Action with Communities in Rural Kent) levels 1, 2, and 3, which are valid until 31st January 2017. We are one of only a few halls to hold the level 3 qualification.

Please note that there is no step free access to the hall, although we are working hard to make all reasonable alterations. Click here to view our Access Statement. Further improvements are planned, and as there is still much work to be done, we welcome any offers of help, either practical or financial.

We regularly receive feedback - this quote is from one of our recent hirers 'what a lovely hall! Thank you very much for renting it out to us!'
