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.

Want to Hire?

Should you be interested in hiring, whether on a one-off, occasional or regular basis, please take a look at the Pricesand Make Bookings pages and then get in touch. An information leaflet is also available to download.

News  and Events

Ongoing work on the extended car park ...

- a top surface and white lining - remains outstanding. It will not be open for use until this is completed.

In May we expect that some essential drainage works associated with the housing development will be carried out in the existing car park. There is likely to be some unavoidable disruption, but we will be liaising with the Parish Council and the contractors to keep this to an absolute minimum. We will post any updates here and endeavour to ensure that the Booking Secretary and Caretaker have the latest information.

Coronavirus - the Hall is fully open ...

following the lifting of Plan B restrictions on 24 February 2022. Please refer to our Covid-19 page, which has more news and information about what we expect of hirers and how the Hall operates as a "covid-19 secure" facility. Whether you are a prospective customer or a regular user, please contact the Booking Secretary in the normal way to discuss hiring in the future.


The address of the hall is:

Lavant Memorial Hall
Pook Lane

PO18 0AH
