Signing of the

Hildersham Village Hall Trust Deed on 29 January 2007


Hildersham Village Hall is your complete and practical solution; whether you are looking to hold a Children's Party, a Christening Reception, a Wedding Reception, a family gathering or photo shoot or an after funeral gathering or you might need a home for your Society or Club meetings or maybe you might be looking to hire the hall for an Educational Course, whether it be for just one week or a whole 10 week term.  Hildersham Village Hall is the place for you, with its beautiful setting, if your event requires a bigger Venue, why not have a Marquee in the Recreation Ground (subject to Parish Council approval) and use the village hall as a base.

The Village Hall has a very special place in all the Hildersham parishioner's hearts; everyone has spent many happy hours there and all have very special memories of a particular village event (see side photos),  this is due in no small part to the halls unique and charming character.

The Hall is located not far from the river Granta and has truly spectacular views across open fields.  There is the village recreation ground to the rear, which has a safe and enclosed grassed children's play area.

Improvements to the interior of the village hall

In August 2014, HVHT was awarded a Big Lottery Fund grant of £9608 for improvements to the interior of the village hall. There are three stages to this refurbishment, which must be completed within one year of receiving the grant.


Stage 1  New flooring, heating and curtains in the main hall. Completed and celebrated with a Big Breakfast event in October 2014.


Stage 2 New fixtures, fittings and flooring for all toilet areas; reconfiguration to create a storage area for tables and chairs. Currently ongoing and expected to be completed by the end of February 2015.


Stage 3 Kitchen revamp, with new units, sink and flooring.  Anticipated start time mid-July 2015.


Separately from grant-funded work, painting and decorating will be carried out to give our much-loved old hall a fresh, new look.


On completion, HVHT plan to hold an Open Day event to show off our revamped hall and to thank the Big Lottery Fund for making it possible.

The Hildersham Village Hall Charitable Trust is working very hard in our efforts to build a new hall, as sadly our existing hall will have to be eventually replaced as it is very slowly subsiding, as when it was built it did not have any foundations.  HVHT is holding a wide range of fund raising events and one of the ways you can help is by attending one of these.  We also welcome your gift-aided donations, these can be sent to the HVHT Treasurer at the following address.

HVHT, Quince Cottage, High Street, Hildersham CB21 6BU

Hildersham Recreation Room

was built 100 Years ago in September 1914

Hildersham Village Hall has a fascinating history, during WW1 it acted as a Surgical Ward at the 1st Eastern General Hospital sited where the Cambridge University Library is today in Cambridge. 

At the end of the Great War, these Army Huts were retired and the residents of Hildersham decided to buy one as a new village hall.  The 'Recreation Room' as it was initially called cost just £83 12s 0d and it was finally erected in late 1920.  The hut was paid for by the villagers themselves.

Tepees used for a big wedding on the Saturday & for a fantastic village Fun Day on the Sunday, which included music (here with Sawston Steel), sports day and later a celebration of local churches
