Haddenham panto 2022
Due to the uncertainty of possible COVID restrictions being imposed on us at anytime this coming winter, the Arkenstall Committee has sadly come to the conclusion that a pantomime would be both difficult and risky to organise this coming January.  However we are proposing an alternative entertainment in the form of a ‘Winter Concert’…..read more here

If you – or any organisation that you are involved in or anyone else you may know! – are interested and have an act you would like to put on, then please contact us at enquiries@arkenstallcentre.org.uk

 

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. Upcoming events can be found here.

Room booking is made via the calendar page which will allow you to make bookings online by clicking the + symbol next to the date that you require. This will open a new tab in your web browser that will take you to our bookings site. Alternatively contact us via our bookings email or by phone on (07538 449677).

There is a sliding scale of hiring rates offering preferential rates to Haddenham community groups.  The facilities in the Centre are hired by ‘period’ – morning, afternoon or evening – at £29 for the meeting rooms (equivalent to £7.25 per hour), and £58 for the Main Hall – which seats up to 200 – (equivalent to £14.50 per hour).  More information about hire charges can be found here together with the Standard Terms and Conditions of Hire and other related information. Hiring fees are reviewed annually.

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