A-Z of Services


Wheathampstead Parish Council owns and operates the Memorial Hall in Wheathampstead as a community facility. The Main Hall, Hewitt Room and Green Room are all available for separate hire.

The Main Hall (11m x 12.5m) has a raised stage (8.5m x 5m), full stage lighting and electrically operated curtains. The hall has a capacity of up to 140 seated at tables, 170 seated theatre style and 240 standing. It also has an AV (audio-visual) system that will allow high quality films and presentations to be shown on a 4m screen. A high-resolution projector has been permanently installed and hangs from the roof. There are acoustic baffles around the Hall to reduce the echo and a hearing loop is available whenever the AV system is switched on. The Main Hall has immediate access to the well-equipped kitchen and a concertina-style partition can be removed to connect to a separate hiring room, the Hewitt Room.

The Hewitt Room (6m x 9m) has a full bar facility and separate access to the kitchen. This room has a 75" UHD 4K monitor, which can be used for the showing of presentations and videos/films where required. This room can can also be hired out separately.

The Green Room (3.5 m x 5.5m) is located behind the stage for actors to change and prepare for performances.  Lighting is controlled from a lighting loft at the rear of the hall. This room is also available for small meetings, art classes and as storage space during larger events.

All facilities include folding tables that can easily be moved around and set up by a single person.  There is also a large stock of chairs – enough to provide seating for 180.

The Memorial Hall also houses the Parish Council Offices, the village library and police office.  The library has its own entrance but internal access between the hall and library is possible.  There is ample parking which is shared by the Memorial Hall, library and doctors’ surgery that occupies the same site.

One of the main features or the Memorial Hall is that it is adjacent to the village’s playing fields, with wonderful views across the Lea Valley.
