A LITTLE ABOUT GELDESTON VILLAGE HALL



Geldeston Village Hall

Geldeston Village Hall

Geldeston Village hall was originally built by the Dowson family in the 1920's for the purpose of showing films. Since those days we have seen many changes but the hall continues to be at the heart of the village and its activities.
We are the focal point for all the local events including our renowned Village Fete, Music On The Green and much more. Regular activities include an Indoor Bowls club, Pilates, weekly coffee mornings, Ukulele club as well as frequent films shows.

We are Dementia Friendly

2 Anonymous Donations

We have recently had two wonderful donations to the hall refurbishment of £5000 and £100 and at this time they are anonymous. But we are very grateful whoever you are.

A Very Generous Legacy

We have been very lucky to have been left a very generous legacy by Mr John Bullock a late user of the hall and a Geldeston resident of £2500 which we are putting towards the "Lets Eat" project.

A New PA System

We have been awarded £865 to purchase our own PA System. This is from Love Norfolk Fund via Norfolk Community Foundation. This will enable us to hold more of our own music events and so create more community cohesion and raise money for the hall.
