About Gunnerside Village Hall

The Village Hall (originally called the Literary Institute) was built in the 1860s, and has been formally registered as a charity since 1940. It is managed by a committee of Trustees representing village residents and organisations which use the hall regularly.

The upper floor of the Hall (view floor plan) comprises a large single room with a raised stage, which has a licensed seating capacity of 70 for performances. The ground floor (view floor plan) has two smaller meeting rooms, which can be combined to form a single room, and a well-equipped modern kitchen which was re-furbished in 2006. There are two cloakrooms, one of which now has disabled access. A stair-lift gives access to the mezzanine and upper floors.  All doors and windows were fully double-glazed in 2010,

The Hall has a premises licence for the sale and consumption of alcohol.
