A Village Hall with Victorian charm

This quaint and charming village hall is situated on the A340 in the historic village of Aldermaston in West Berkshire. Conveniently situated between the major towns of Reading, Basingstoke and Newbury and very close to Tadley in North Hampshire. The Parish Hall is a building for all the local community, the neighbouring communities and anyone who would like to use it.

Hire a Hall


Available to hire to both residents and non-residents, it has two main rooms that can be hired separately or together, with an overall capacity of 100. As their village hall, the people of Aldermaston use it to run many groups and clubs. Meeting regularly in either individual halls or the whole building.

There is also a well equipped kitchen suitable to cater for Weddings, family parties and other functions. If you wish to hire a hall or know more about making a booking

March 2021 - Hallmark Accreditation Level 1


Hallmark is a nationally recognised accreditation scheme for community buildings, which aims to support, establish and reward good practice and encourage improvement in established customs and procedures. There are three levels and we have now been awarded level one which focuses on the management and administration of the hall. The hall is a registered charity and the Charity Commission has endorsed Hallmark as part of the Commission's Quality Standards Endorsement Programme. We are delighted that this accreditation shows the evidence of our well run and good quality hall.


We will now be working towards Level 2 which focuses on Health, safety, security and licences.

Brief History of Aldermaston Parish Hall

The Victorian Parish Hall, built in 1897, has a period charm that is equally at home with a disco or afternoon tea party. It has been cared for by a succession of dedicated caretakers and committee members that have looked after it and kept it in good order for both regular users and guests hirers. The hall is in constant use by local groups, by the local community and is hired for Weddings, Birthday Parties and Children's Parties regularly throughout the year.

Parish Hall Refurbishment (2017-2019)

Refurbishment Projects at Aldermaston Parish Hall

Refurbishment to the Billiard room flooring was completed at the end of 2017 thanks to a very generous donation for the Masons who use the hall

Refurbishment of the exterior of the building will be carried out this summer (2018) after receiving a grant from the West Berks community fund and various fund raising events.

New shed has been purchased and erected. Many thanks to SSE who gave us a grant and also to The Aldermaston Players for their very generous donation.

Next project is to redecorate the main hall, entrance lobby, landing, upstairs toilet and kitchen. We hope to complete this in 2019, funds permitting

Annual Village Events

There are several highlights to the year in the Parish Hall. In February, the management committee, with the Aldermaston Players, put on Dinner/Theatre evenings. In spring the Parish Hall put on an afternoon 'Talk & Tea Party'. In December, the Parish Hall put on a Carol Concert with lots of joining in. Every third year in December is the historic Candle Auction, often at the Parish Hall, this one of the few remaining Candle Auctions in the country. Once or twice a year there is a village get together where we get to know old and new residents alike over some nibbles and a glass of wine.
