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.

News and Events

A Big Thank You ...

to everyone who supported the Lavant Village Fete on 15th June, which was opened by Justin Audibert and Kathy Bourne from the Chichester Festival Theatre. The weather brightened up for the afternoon allowing all the events to take place and, like a couple of the gazebos, we were blown away by the attendance. We will post details of the sum raised for local organisations shortly.

The iconic Lavant Phone Box ...

has been lovingly restored and sited at the entrance to the Hall car park - just don't try and make a phone call! Watch out for some creative use of the interior in due course. The box was originally located on the south side of Pook Lane, opposite Parker's Cottages, where there was no safe access at the edge of the road, and had fallen into disprepair. Under the auspices of the Lavant History Project and with help from the Goodwood Estate, Lavant Parish Council and the developers of Great Elms, the K6 box has been restored and re-sited where it can both be accessed safely and its totemic presence can play a part in calming traffic flows. You can see it here.

We have recently ...

upgraded the lighting in the Bleaches Room with LED fittings, providing both better light and energy savings.

The address of the hall is:

Lavant Memorial Hall
Pook Lane
East Lavant
PO18 0AH
