The Memorial Hall is closed to all bookings for the foreseeable future.  We will review the situation regularly to take account of the latest advise.

The Memorial Hall in Purley on Thames is close to the River Thames and provides panoramic views over the Thames Valley, South Oxfordshire and Mapledurham; an area of outstanding natural beauty.

The hall was built as a memorial to those people who lost their lives in the first and second world wars; to provide affordable space for the residents of the village and local areas to use as they so wish. The money to build the hall was raised by the villagers.

The hall is available for bookings for weddings, parties, group events, art & craft exhibitions and meetings. The hall can accommodate up to 150 people seated.

Ample parking is available outside the hall with the potential for overflow parking onto the grassed garden.

A leaflet is available detailing details about the Memorial Hall.
