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.

Whether you are a prospective customer or a regular user, please contact the Booking Secretary in the normal way to discuss hiring in the future.

Work is starting on the extended car park ...

on the 1st November. Good news! The developers have agreed to maintain access to the car park, although a small number of spaces will be lost temporarily during the works. Disabled parking spaces will be unaffected and we expect to make arrangements for some overspill parking during the day.  Parking will also continue to be possible alongside the Green in Pook and Sheepwash Lanes as now. There may be occasions when heavy plant has to be moved on or off the site, but these measures should ensure any disruption is minimised and hiring is unaffected. Please check back here for further updates.

A New Fire Alarm System  ...

has been installed by local company PA Fire Systems during our partial closure. The system comprises a comprehensive array of smoke and heat detectors with audible sounders and visual strobes throughout the building. There are alarm activation points at all the Hall exits. The system will provide an enhanced level of fire safety in line with current practice.


The address of the hall is:

Lavant Memorial Hall
Pook Lane
East Lavant
PO18 0AH
