St Leonards and St Ives Village Hall

It’s been wonderful to welcome the return of many of regular hirers and the return of regular community events in the village hall. We hope we will see many of you in the months to come, but in the meantime here’s our next big event…

After our wonderful and highly successful Jubilee Fair on 3 June 22 was so popular everyone seems to want another! This will take place on 11 June 2023, and like last year, all the halls and the recreation area will be in full use with sideshows, children’s entertainments, stalls, food and drink outlets and entertainment on both the indoor and outside stage. Keep checking back for more details as they become available or contact Clem on for information or to book a stall.

As one of the first village halls to be awarded Hallmark Accreditation in 2011 we truly are one of the best village halls in the Dorset and Hampshire area. Our popularity is evident from the large range of regular users and the number of private bookings that we are proud to host. We are ideally located just two minutes off the A31, with easy links to the M3 and M27.

During 2022 we completed the installation of solar panels on the roof making us even more environmentally friendly.
