The Upper Deverills Village Hall is a single storey building of light weight construction built in the 1950s. In recent years a number of improvements have been carried out including a hard standing area, an extension to provide better toilets and storage, a newly fitted kitchen and redecoration. The hall is managed by a committee (current Chair Ted Flint). There is a lively programme of activities throughout the year including classes run by clubs and societies, talks hosted by special interest groups and regular social evenings. Of note are the regular last-Friday-of-the-month pub nights and the annual fete and flower show in July (see Events).

Hall bookings may be made by calling 01985 844325.


Currently, while the Coronavirus restrictions are in place, all forecast events in the hall have been cancelled. However, although we cannot get together for our usual Summer Fete, we have come up with some activities that we hope will be fun.
