Welcome to the Leathley Village Hall website. The hall is also known as Leathley Parish Rooms.
Hall for All
Leathley Parish Rooms exist primarily for the benefit of the residents of the local parishes but are also available for hire to the general public – see Hiring.
The facilities, which include a stage and a well-equipped and recently refurbished kitchen, make it an excellent venue for meals, receptions, meetings, dances and wedding parties, plays and concerts and cycling promotions!
A handful of erstwhile members of the village hall committee spent two days at the end of March doing a litter pick around the village, where, to nobody’s amazement, a huge volume of discarded wrapping paper, cans, bottles and other roadside debris was found and 12 bags were collected in all.
Harrogate Borough Council provided the bags and the equipment. Thanks to everyone who turned up to help make the village surroundings look a little bit better.
Established in 1922 as the Leathley Parish Room, Leathley’s village hall is located on the opposite side of the road to the Church, in picturesque surroundings on the edge of the village green.
The charming stone building houses a main room with a small stage area. The rooms’ facilities also include kitchen and lavatories, which adjoin the main room, and can be accessed from the main room or by a corridor which runs along the back of the building, leading to the outside. Steps at the rear of the building lead down from the corridor to a grass garden area enclosed by stone walls.
The rooms are used for a wide range of events, perhaps the best-known of which are the fund-raising Teas On The Green that take place to raise funds for the Church and Women’s Institute, together with the monthly ‘Last Friday Supper Club’ to raise money for the Parish Room itself.
Farnley Estates WI, the Young Farmers, the Parochial Church Council, Lower Washburn Parish Council and Pilates classes also convene regularly throughout the year.
The committee for Leathley Parish Rooms meets once every two months.
