About the hall

East Horsley Village Hall was built in 1989 but the story really begins just after the First World War when The Horsley Towers Estate, having fallen on hard times, was being broken up and sold in lots. One of those lots was a small reading room that had been used by the workers on the estate. It was bought by the local Women’s Institute and, although later rebuilt, the facility served as a local community space for the next 65 years.

By 1985 the room needed considerable improvements and it was decided to sell the site for redevelopment and the proceeds be used to help create a larger building that better suited the needs of East Horsley’s growing population.

The 1989 village hall was a great success and in 2000, to meet the growing demand for its’ facilities, the Millennium Extension was built to create an additional large meeting space, office for East Horsley Parish Council and flat for a resident caretaker. The village hall is believed to be one of the largest village community complexes in the UK with more than 50,000 visitors each year.
