About the Hall

Compton Bassett Benson Village Hall Makeover

The final stages of the Village Hall makeover should take place this year. Following the makeover of the entrance hall and main hall; the new roof; the kitchen facilities upgrade and the installation of new playground equipment, the Trustees have now approved a new front sign; a new kitchen emergency exit door and two new front doors to replace the existing doors; and a full refurbishment of the Ladies loo facilities.

This long overdue work is planned to start in April of this year and should finish just before Green Square finish the Briar Leaze building development.

During this period the disabled toilet facilities will be available, but we apologise for any inconvenience that this refurbishment may cause.

We will then look forward to the completion of the surface water drainage works; a reinstatement of the damage to the grass surfaces and the installation of a new entrance path and entrance road surface.

Finally, thanks to all who girded their sporrans and attended the Burns night Ceilidh - it was a great success and a great time was had by all.

Thanks also to the main organiser - Jane Marshall - and everyone who helped make the evening such a success. Peter Alberry

Benson Hall Compton Bassett

The original village hall was located in the small field east of the War Memorial. Built of timber, the whole floor shook when dances were held there! It was demolished in the 1950s after the new building was constructed, at the behest of Guy Benson who also gave land away to the council for the Briar Leaze housing. The new hall bears his name in respect of his generosity.

Its large size, for such a small village, makes it a very useful and versatile space for all sorts of functions, including parties, meetings, wedding receptions, classes etc. Compton Hall Amateur Dramatic Society (CHADS) stage two productions annually and Rural Arts visit twice a year with various touring shows. The hall and its surrounding lawns are the venue for other events, such as the summer village fair.

As well as the hall and stage, there is a fully equipped kitchen and bar area. There is seating provided for 130 people or a mixed table and seating arrangement can accommodate up to 90. There is a maximum number of 250 persons for standing only events.

The Benson Hall is available for hire at £10.00 per hour (£7.50 per hour for village residents)
