Herrison Hall Charlton Down
Herrison Hall Charlton Down complex (Herrison Hall) was built in 1884 and updated in 2003. The Ballroom, Watts Room, Toad Hall, and Kitchen, are all available for hire at reasonable rates. Local Residents running group activities and clubs (open to the general public) in the Village Hall complex, may attract a 50% discount on the hire charges.

We now operate an Online Booking System which enables clients to see availability, make bookings and see all the details of a booking. Go to our website to see the bookings chart, full instructions are given on how to use it.

Clients can book the use of the kitchen for preparation of light refreshments. This use does not constitute ""Exclusive"" use of the kitchen as we only have one kitchen and other clients may wish to use it as well.

Toad Hall has it's own sink, kettles and crockery for use with light refreshments.

Prospective clients are encouraged to arrange a tour of the rooms and their facilities in order to facilitate their use. Please telephone Crayston Lee on

Audio Visual needs in the Ballroom are covered by a 4 metre x 3 metre screen that is fed by a 5,000 lumens rear projector coupled to the sound system. A laptop computer and Internet link is available for use at presentations. Assistance can be given if these items are used. Stage lighting and a P.A. System are also available. All sound & lighting equipment must be booked in advance through the Bookings Secretary, to ensure that it is installed, set up and tested before the event. The Internet link is supplied by BT Internet and as such the supply relies on their service.

PIANO. A Casio Celviano electronic piano has recently been kindly donated by Mrs. Hooper of Poole through her daughter, Mrs. Elliot of Charlton Down. This is a wonderful addition to our facilities in the hall and we look forward to hearing it at future functions.
