Registered charity, number 225812.

Situated in the centre of the village, the Memorial Hall can accommodate groups from 5 to 140 and is available for hire 7 days a week for recreational activities, social and fund raising events, craft fairs, local societies, wedding receptions and family gatherings. It is also used by the Parish Council and serves as a polling station.

The charity manages the hall for use by local inhabitants without distinction of political, religious or other opinions. The more formal document defining its purpose and ongoing management is described in the Scheme (pdf), overseen by the Charity Commisioners for England and Wales.

The Hall was built in 1866 as a Dissenters‘ meeting house and school, it later became a Reading Room and Lecture Hall and subsequently a Drill Hall for the Percy Volunteer Artillery. Bought by public subscription in 1920 as a war memorial hall, it serves as a village hall for the people of Warkworth and surrounding areas. For further background see History of the Hall

The Hall is managed and maintained by a small group of volunteers. If you are interested in helping in any way, please contact Peter Burnham (Tel: 01665 711388, Email: peter.burnham @ gmail.com).
