Looking for a Venue?

Lavant Memorial Hall is a well-appointed Village Hall situated in the South Downs National Park just outside Chichester in West Sussex. The hall overlooks one of the prettiest Village Greens in the county, with picturesque views of the South Downs and the Goodwood Estate. It offers an ideal venue for Private Parties, Wedding Receptions, Exhibitions, Craft Fayres and similar events.

The hall offers a variety of spaces that can be hired separately, or in combination, to provide greater flexibility. Please visit our “Facilities” pages for more details. It is licensed for entertainment, the playing of live and recorded music, and has a premises licence for the sale of alcohol, although this is not available for private functions. We recommend the use of a Temporary Event Notice if hirers wish alcohol to be sold during their hire.

Want to Hire?

Should you be interested in hiring, whether on a one-off, occasional or regular basis, please take a look at the Pricesand Make Bookings pages and then get in touch. An information leaflet is also available to download.


What's On?

The hall is regularly used for Meetings, Lectures, Classes, and various forms of Entertainment and Leisure. The NEW "live" Hall Diary has all the details.  For more information about the role of the hall in the community visit our About page.

Please note that use of the Village Green is controlled by Lavant Parish Council and further information can be found here.
