A range of events including social, educational and recreational activities are organised by the Committee during the year. The Committee does have to provide adequate funding to repair and maintain the Hall to secure its future, however, the cost of these activities are kept to a minimum to allow as many Parishioners as possible to participate. Ongoing activities include;

  • staging of ArtsReach productions
  • Programme of Talks
  • Regular Film Nights incorporating Purbeck Film Festival events

You can find out more about specific events by clicking on the Events tab under Activity on the Home Page.

As well as running our own schedule of activities the Committee actively encourages other users of the Hall.  Current regular users include;

  • Keep Fit Club
  • Pilates Classes
  • Book-Let
  • Briantspuddle Singers
  • Village Horticultural Show
  • Parish Council Meetings

You can find out more about the users of the Hall by clicking under the Activity tab on the Home Page.
