Welcome to Hartington Village Hall.

Close to the centre of our  village, Hartington Village Hall is a traditional hall set within the stunning Peak District National Park. Built in 1924, its modest exterior belies a tardis-like interior, licensed to hold up to 200 people & offering:

  • Large sprung, maple dance floor
  • Bar and Kitchen facilities
  • Toilets
  • Stage for band/disco
  • Quieter area – ideal for serving buffets
  • An upstairs ‘Bakehouse’ meeting area for small groups.
  • Tables and Chairs

There is ample parking nearby, either in designated bays in the village centre or in the Derbyshire Dales Car Park.

The Village Hall is an ideal venue for weddings, dances, parties for all who are young at heart, social group meetings, conferences, visiting school groups, and wakes.

Hartington Village Hall is a registered charity – Charity No. 525048.

Weddings : the Hall is an ideal location for a wedding reception, both in respect of it’s general location in the scenic Peak District, as well as being adjacent to the Church of St Giles. This 12th/13th Century Church is a beautiful, atmospheric place for a wedding (see St Giles Church ).

A further potential use is by visiting school groups, both local as well as those who come to visit the area and stay at the nearby Hartington Hall Youth Hostel. Our local History Group has a rich range of resources available in the Village Hall. We have also devised and published a ‘Village History Trail’ and an option is for primary school groups to use the Hall as a base with access to St Giles Church and undertake, with the aid of volunteers supporting teachers, a series of planned activities. At least one visiting secondary school uses the Hall as a base throughout their week long stay at the Youth Hostel.
