Monxton & Amport Village Hall

The Monxton and Amport village is an excellent venue for local clubs and societies, events, family celebrations and children’s parties.

The hall has disabled access, with a custom-made ramp outside the hall, and brand new disabled toilet facilities inside. There are also baby changing facilities.

The hall is licensed for private and public events between of 10.00 and 24.00 hrs unless special permission has been granted by TVBC and Monxton and Amport Hall Management Committee. There is an Entertainments and Stage Play Licence, but no alcohol license

Parking:

There are 4 parking places directly outside the Hall with additional parking spaces along the road. We have now improved the parking outside Monxton Manor and there is enough space for a further 5-6 cars. There is overflow parking in the Black Swan car park just beyond the bridge. We politely request that hall users to not turn in residents’ driveways.

Availability:

Hall availability can be viewed here. There is a Bookings Diary displayed outside the hall on the notice board, but this is only updated at the beginning of each month so it may not be absolutely up to date. Please check with the Bookings Manager if you are unsure.

Alcohol Licence:

The cost of an alcohol licence is approx £20. Please note that if you are operating a “bring your own” or “alcohol supplied for free” private event, you do not need a licence. Test Valley Borough Council require applications for an Alcohol Licence to be sent to them 14 working days before the Event. Hall Dimensions: 19m x 10m (incl. stage)
