On Saturday 30th March, the doors to the village hall were thrown open allowing villagers, hall hirers, contractors, and local business owners and individuals who have supported the village hall to see the revamp.

Fenland Ukuleles provided musical entertainment and the North Wootton Village Hall Management Committee laid on refreshments, while visitors enjoyed glimpsing the new, lower ceiling along with its much improved lighting, the renovated toilets, the brand new kitchen, the new heating system, and the brighter, fresher redecoration.

At 11am, Mayor of the Borough of King’s Lynn and West Norfolk, Councillor Nick Daubney, assisted by villager Mary Cook, cut the ribbon in front of the village hall, officially reopening the venue.

The refurbishment was made possible thanks to a grant from WREN’s FCC Community Action Fund, donations from local businesses and individuals, and the efforts of the North Wootton Village Hall Management Committee.

Since the refurbishment, enquiries and bookings to hire the hall have come in thick and fast. There are now many classes, groups, and workshops that meet regularly at the village hall, as well as a high number of private bookings for birthday parties, weddings, and Christenings.

To book the hall for yourself, you can check availability using our calendar and then get in touch via the website, via email (, via telephone (07757 236687), or via social media.

A wonderful celebration of the village hall ‘s reopening was enjoyed on a glorious and sunny spring morning. Lots of joy of partaking in its rebirth. Fabulous to see the display of photographs of the village over many historical years. Loved the beautiful and very attractive wedding display. That really showed what a super venue for wedding receptions the village hall can now be. The music played courtesy of the Fenland Ukuleles band. The food laid on for all attending villagers and friends was scrumptious and very plentiful! What a good few hours spent together in the celebrations of the local community.
