Farmoor Village Hall

At the heart of the Community

Farmoor Village Hall

A Real Village Asset

Farmoor Village Hall recently celebrated its 50th anniversary. Having started life as a wooden hut, it has been modernised and refurbished over the years, and is now a comfortable and well equipped meeting place. Superfast Broadband is also available.

The Hall can accommodate up to 200 people (including garden area) – 130 seated theatre style; 80 dining; 60 dancing. We have a fully equipped kitchen with two cookers, fridge, water-urn and – our latest acquisition – a dishwasher. The snug has been recently refurbished. The facilities are available for hire; for contact details click here

The Hall is situated on the Cumnor Road, Farmoor (post code OX2 9NS), adjacent to the local shop. There is a pleasant secluded garden at the rear of the building. For summer events, marquees can be erected to extend the covered space available. There is limited parking at the front.

Celebrating 50 years at Farmoor

A celebratory party was held in December 2012, attended by many Farmoor residents – past and present – MP Nicola Blackwood, and County Councillor Janet Godden, a great supporter of the local community.

Management Committee

The Hall is a run by a management committee, made up of one representative from each local group/organisation, and an equal number of elected members. We meet six times a year. Farmoor residents are very welcome to attend meetings as observers.

Local Meeting Place

The Hall is a very busy place. It provides a meeting point for various local clubs and societies, which all welcome new members. There is a  Photography Group, an Art Group, an Indoor Bowls club, and a very active WI branch.

Do you have a skill or passion you would like to share with others? Would you like to set up – or help set up – a new group or club? We’d love to hear from you.

The Hall is also somewhere to meet friends and neighbours in an informal setting.

Fund raising

The management committee puts on social events for the village, as part of our fund raising efforts. Things which have proved popular in the past include barbecues, quiz nights, bazaars and pub nights. We are always looking for new ideas and welcome suggestions.

Calling Farmoor Volunteers: Would you like to help with our fundraising? Do you have any suggestions for new activities, or different ways of doing things?
