Welcome To Mountnessing Village Hall

About the Hall

Mountnessing Village Hall is situated alongside the playing fields adjacent to the windmill and welcomes users to its country setting. The Hall opens onto the Millennium Patio Garden complete with lynchgate, ideal for photographs. Also, for a donation to the Windmill Fund, we are able to provide access to the grounds of the windmill for that special photograph.

The Hall comprises an entrance foyer, hall 60' by 30', a large kitchen, toilets and storage area. There is a small stage area. The Hall will accommodate 150 people for a seated event or up to 200 people for a disco/dance. There are 12 round tables seating up to 10 people and 120 banqueting chairs. There are additionally 104 folding soft chairs, which are stored on a mobile rack, and also 10 plastic stacking chairs. There are twelve tables, size 72 x 30" (184 x 76 cm) and twenty four size 36 x 30" (92 x 76 cm).

The Hall shares the large public car park, which also serves the adjoining playing fields.

Important Notes - Types of Bookings permitted

The Hall is not licensed for the sale of alcohol but the hirer is able to apply for a Temporary Events Notice to allow the Hirer to offer such a service for their event attendees. Such licenses are limited to 12 per annum. Certain criteria must be met to obtain the approval of the Mountnessing Village Hall Committee, and an additional charge is also payable for such a licence to the Council. If a publican is engaged to supply and run a bar then he / she would normally be happy to apply for a license on the hirer's behalf. For further information and an application form, visit Brentwood Borough Council's TENS licensing page
