TONGHAM VILLAGE HALL
AT A GLANCE
The Village Hall was built in 1897 for the benefit of the residents of Tongham to commemorate Queen Victoria’s Diamond Jubilee. The building was put into a charitable trust to be used for the benefit of the inhabitants of Tongham, their visitors and friends for use in engaging in physical activities or for social, moral, cultural or literary purposes.
There are two foundation stones: the first was laid by H M Chester on 25th December 1897 on behalf of subscribers and donors and the second by the vicar the Rev H M Harke on behalf of the trustees and the building committee.
It was officially opened on the 26th of May 1898 by Lord Lieutenant Viscount Middleton.
Since then the Hall has been the home of various sports, cultural and social gatherings such as the Tongham Women’s Institute, and the Tongham Olde Time Dance Club, which met at the hall for over fifty years. A Badminton club used to meet regularly for several decades, as did a Boxing Club. Now our activities include Yoga, Tai Chi, Dance, Puppy Training, Table Tennis, Art Classes and children's parties.
Why not schedule your group’s meetings at Tongham Village Hall at an affordable price, and become part of Tongham history, too?
CLUBS & ACTIVITIES
Tongham Village Hall is in the business of changing and shaping lives. The hall hosts a number of classes and activities and we encourage our clubs and societies in creating opportunities for individuals and communities.
IMPORTANT NOTICE - COVID-19
In the light of yesterday's Government statement and in line with action now being taken by other local halls and community centres the Management Committee feel that they have no alternative but to close Tongham Village Hall from 10pm tonight until further notice.
This step is being taken extremely reluctantly but is to protect all hirers, their clients and the wider community.
We apologise for any inconvenience and distress that this may cause our hirers and their clients but, in the light of the government advice, consider it important to take this necessary measure to minimise the potential to either directly or indirectly spread the virus.
With best wishes
