Curry/Pizza/Movie night for the Renovation Team

Social events

Do you want to put on a dinner party for 20+ of your friends? Stanford Dingley Village Hall could be ideal. With its fully equipped kitchen and servery, well stocked crockery, cutlery and glassware, new tables and chairs, flexible lighting and sound system to set the mood you want for a wonderful evening, SDVH must be considered. It is one of the most intimate, friendly, well-equipped and affordable venues in West Berkshire.


Talks and Lectures

With space and chairs to seat 40-45 people in a lecture style layout, a hi-res projector, drop-down screen and laptop/tablet input, the hall is very capable of handling small to medium size gatherings for talks, lectures and society/club meetings. If you wish to serve a cup of tea or a glass of mulled wine at Chrismas to your guests, the kitchen/servery and the hall’s stock of crockery and glassware make such occasions very straightforward.


Family Celebrations

Do you have a big birthday coming up? Or a family christening for which you are considering our 11th Century church, St Denys’? Whilst the hall has excellent kitchen facilities, perhaps you want to enjoy the event without the hassle of catering? Both of our village pubs are happy to offer catering services.

Business Meetings

Do you and your colleagues need to get away from the phones and PCs to get some peace and quiet for more contemplative activities such as strategic planning or some training? Or perhaps your club, society or charity needs a more formal setting for an AGM or a Trustees meeting.

Stanford Dingley Village Hall could be the ideal venue. The hi-spec AV system will meet most presentation and training needs and for those who need to stay connected we will shortly have a 50Mbs broadband fibre connection.

On catering, options range from self service tea and coffee from the little kitchen to a fully catered service from one of our pubs, either in the hall or in the pubs’ dining room.

Various room layouts can be offered; 20 or so people boardroom style, 40-45 lecture style or horseshoe style for training.


Exhibitions, Shows and Sales

When we reopened the hall in September 2017, one of its first uses was a 3 day art exhibition across which around 400 people visited the show. The hall has an abundance of natural light, but also benefits from adjustable spotlights on tracks either side of the hall.

We are now well stocked with new tables on which to exhibit items and all round the hall there is a traditional picture rail from which your work can be suspended.

Whilst Stanford Dingley is a delightful rural destination that attracts may visitors particularly in the summer, it is highly accessible being only 15-20 minutes away from M4/A4/A34 arterial routes.



Wherever you are from, SDVH offers a venue to provide support and development to the people or group you care about. Whether that be young mums and toddlers, keep fit for the over 60’s, yoga or tai-chi, coffee mornings or lunch clubs for seniors, our hall offers the facilities and a welcoming, homely environment for your activity.
