Welcome to Worfield Village Hall
Worfield Village Hall was the idea and also funded by the Reverend Robert Cecil Harwood Evans and was built on land donated by Mrs Morrisson of Wyken. The hall’s first season was in 1913 and was used by the men of Worfield to meet up after work for a cup of tea.
During the First World War it became a Voluntary Aid Detachment hospital. VAD’s were founded in 1909 with the help of the Red Cross and the Order of St John. By 1916 there were 8000 trained nurses and 126,000 beds countrywide. Agatha Christie, Emelia Earhart and Hattie Jaques were all VAD nurses.
Our beautiful village hall is maintained and run by a committee of voluntary locals and the bar is run by our local pub, The Dog and Davenport Arms.
It is used by local groups such as the W.I., the Brownies and in winter for indoor bowling. It is also used as our local polling station at election times.
The hall is now a favoured venue for wedding receptions, birthday party’s, christenings, exercise groups and other functions. It is also used for meetings and local band practices.
