The village of Husbands Bosworth is fortunate is having three community venues.
TURVILLE MEMORIAL HALL
Located on the crossroads of the A5199 Welford Road and the A4304 Kilworth Road in the centre of the village the Turville Memorial Hall, which was opened in 1895, is the main community venue - the Village Hall. The Hall is divided into two hiring venues. The Main Hall has a polished wood floor suitable for dancing up to ballroom standard. A full-sized badminton court is marked out. A raised stage area, approximately 7m wide by 5m deep is situated at one end of the hall. Seated capacity is 80 persons. A smaller Committee Room is situated adjacent to, and can be hired separately or used in conjunction with, the Main Hall via a connecting door. A servery from the kitchen area opens onto the Committee Room. Folding trestle tables, card tables and comfortable chairs are available.
Prospective hirers are asked to check availability at: www.hbvillagehall.communitybookings.co.uk and then contact the following for a booking form.
The Church Hall was built by the village in 1969 with the proceeds of a bequest from the Misses Marsh, members of whose family had been Churchwardens at All Saints Parish Church for over 100 years. The Hall is situated in the centre of the village, behind the church, and is accessed off Honeypot Lane. Limited car parking is available on site. Foot access is also possible through the churchyard itself. The Hall has a polished wooden floor, with a floor space of approximately 12m square. Seating capacity is approximately 80 people. Folding trestle tables, card tables and comfortable chairs are available. A fully equipt servery opens directly onto the main hall.
