War Memorial Hall

The War Memorial Hall was built in 1923 to commemorate the ‘village lads’ who had lost their lives in the First World War.  The Hall was built using money raised by public subscription to provide a facility for use by local residents. In the early years the main activities were dances, film shows and even ballet performances.

In 1935 a refreshment room was added, 1985 saw a new two storey extension including kitchen, toilets, meeting rooms and a rear entrance and 2020 we installed a new modern toilet block with showers and changing area. We are constantly looking at new ideas to improve your village hall, with our most recent upgrade being to provide energy saving lighting, giving the hall a wonderful fresh modern lick of paint and some new curtains!

Over the years, the Hall has been used by many organisations for coffee mornings, jumble sales, fitness classes and has seen many a child’s birthday party.The Centenary Players, who are a village amateur dramatics group, put on an annual pantomime and both Bradwell School use the main hall for their P.E. lessons. We now have Youth Hostel accreditation and the hall can be booked out for weekend stays.

We were pleased to announce the opening of the Bradwell Community Library inside the hall and this continues to be its own successful project.

Bradwell War Memorial Hall is a registered charity (Charity Number 517226) The Charitable Objects being: “The Provision And Maintenance Of A Village Hall For The Use Of The Inhabitants Of The Parish Of Bradwell Without Distinction Of Political, Religious Or Other Opinions, Including Use For Meetings, Lectures And Classes, And For Other Forms Of Recreation And Leisure-Time Occupation, With The object Of Improving The Conditions Of Life For The Said Inhabitants.”
