Are you calm, cool and collected? Can you supervise a group of children without breaking a sweat? Then why not volunteer as a chaperone for the Haddenham Pantomime?

Chaperones would need to commit to at least two performances and a dress rehearsal and would receive free training and a free DBS check. They also receive two free pantomime tickets as a thank you for volunteering. The accreditation is valid for three years and can be used for other events.

Places for chaperone training are going fast, so please contact us via our Facebook page asap for more information and to sign up.

The AVC has three rooms available for hire including a main hall and a stage.  It also plays host to the village library access point providing a link to the county’s public library service for Haddenham and surrounding villages.

The main business of the Arkenstall Village Centre is the hiring of  facilities for functions e.g. official enquiries, business meetings, parish council meetings, exhibitions, weddings and private parties.

The Centre has a well-equipped kitchen and buffet lunches can be provided if required.

It is the centre of village activities for local groups – art classes, exercise groups, drama groups, concerts and the Haddenham Pantomime.

There is a sliding scale of hiring rates, together with Standard Terms and Conditions of Hire, offering preferential rates to Haddenham community groups.  Hiring fees are reviewed annually.

All reservations should be made with the bookings secretary by telephone (07977 707433), via the printable paper bookings forms in the “Hiring” section of this website.

Every year we produce and perform a pantomime more details of which can be found here on our Haddenham Pantomime page.
