About us

Ideal for parties, receptions, lunches, theatre, talks, exhibitions, cinema, workshops, etc. Full performing and dancing authorisation and a bar licence can be provided. Used regularly by many local groups and is a principal location during the Hungerford Arts Festival.

The Croft hall stands on the site of the old Free Grammar School, (1635-1884), and was built thanks to the generosity of sir William Pearce of Chilton Lodge.

The builder was J.H Wooldridge & Sons of the Wharf in Hungerford, and was originally known as Church House, which in addition to the main hall housed accommodation for the curate and caretaker, together with a separate kitchen.

The name was changed in later years to "The Croft Hall", when all the rooms were made available for public and business use, and today houses the Hungerford Playgroup, founded in 1972/3, while offices occupy the first floor, formerly the curate's accommodation.

The Hall has been improved recently with new lighting and sound system, and also has an efficient air conditioning system, and is used twice monthly by the Hungerford Film Club.

The Main Hall and Committee Room are available for hire for meetings, parties, and other social functions, and an alcohol licence is available to hirers.

Your library is about so much more than books
Judging from the amount of community activity going in Hungerford Library, the council are going to have a hard time justifying its closure in their next round of swingeing cuts.
