One of the main selling points of Itchen Abbas and Avington Village Hall is its lovely, self-contained grounds. Doors open from both the main hall and the small hall onto the garden which, in good weather, is a real sun-trap. It is totally enclosed so that children can play safely while parents relax and enjoy themselves. It also has a wooden play frame which can provide hours of entertainment for the little ones! In addition, there is a Boules piste which is well used by the local community during the summer months.
If you are planning to invite a LOT of people to your event, you may like to consider hiring a marquee, which can be set up in the garden and linked to the hall by a covered walkway if you wish. Take a look at some of the pictures in our gallery to see how spectacular a marquee can look! We are also happy for you to hire bouncy castles / slides, or have a picnic, barbecue or hog roast outside in the summer months. If the weather’s good, it’s a shame not to take advantage of the lovely setting.
The hall has the benefit of parking for 35 cars. By negotiation, and for a small extra charge, we are also able to use the Church car park across the road, meaning that we can offer parking for a larger number of cars if necessary.
