Dagnall Village Hall

Dagnall Village Hall is nestled in the valley beneath Whipsnade Zoo to the north east and Ashridge to the south.

The hall has been refurbished very recently including full redecoration, installation of new toilets including disabled facilities and a new central heating system. The village hall offers 2 halls, one with a stage, and a separate fully equipped kitchen. There is a newly resurfaced car park holding 25+ cars with disabled access via ramps to both halls.

The large front hall is warm and welcoming with its lovely stripped floor and tasteful decoration. It provides a perfect backdrop for any event. Measuring approximately 35’ x 25’ the hall has capacity for 80 people seated or 140 standing. The rear hall has its own separate entrance and is approximately half the size. It makes a perfect area for food / bar service. Customers are advised there is no bar facility but you are welcome to bring your own alcohol.

The external grassed areas are regularly mown by our contractor and we have exemplary cleaning staff. We have been fully covid compliant during the pandemic and will be adhering to government guidelines moving forwards.

Please let the Booking Secretary know if you would like the heating on. The radiators are controlled by individual thermostats which you can adjust to suit your requirements.


The kitchen is equipped with an oven, a fridge-freezer, a microwave, a hot–water urn and kettle. The cupboards contain a good stock of mugs, plates, bowls, cups and saucers and there is a small supply of cutlery. Black bin-liners are located in the drawers and washing-up bowls are in the cupboard below the sink. Please put recyclable items, unbagged, in the blue lidded bin to the front of the hall. Silver rubber bins have been placed in the kitchen to assist you with this.

We hope that the facilities available will meet with your approval and that you will want to use Dagnall Village Hall in the future. We would appreciate your assistance in maintaining the cleanliness of the hall for all users and request that you leave the hall in a condition which is as clean and tidy as you would wish to find it.

Before leaving the hall please ensure that you carry out the following:

  • Put rubbish in the black bin liners provided and place in the wheelie-bin outside.
  • Put recyclables, unbagged in the blue bin.
  • Wipe tables clean and restack tables and chairs.
  • Wash, dry and put away all crockery and cutlery used.
  • Flush the toilets.
  • Sweep the floors (brooms and dustpan are located in the boiler room to the left of the stage).
  • Close all windows.
  • Switch off lights.
  • Close all outer doors.
  • Lock the front door.
  • An additional charge will be made if the hall is not left in a clean and tidy condition.

Please inform the Booking Officer if anybody suffers an injury whilst on Village Hall premises, in order that we can make a report as required by the Health and Safety Executive.

Please return the keys and any used tea towels to the Booking Officer.

Thank you for your co-operation,
-- Dagnall Village Hall Management Committee.
