Corona Virus Update

The Arkenstall Trustees met last night and are now hoping to have
two of our meeting rooms open from the 7th of September and the main hall from
September 21st.
The later date is due to our high level windows failing in the recent
storms and needing to be replaced before we can hire out the room.
Bookings should go live on our new and improved bookings system from
August 1st.
All rooms capacities are reduced and all dates may be liable to change in
these challenging times.
If you have any bookings enquiries these can still be made by email: or by telephone (07538 449677).

About the AVC

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.

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