Welcome to Leigh & Bransford Memorial Hall
Leigh & Bransford Memorial Hall and Recreation Ground is probably the largest community hall complex in Worcestershire, with wonderful views of the Malvern Hills. Our building comprises two spacious halls, each with their own toilets, a small committee room, a well-equipped central kitchen with adjacent bar and outside a two-acre playing field. The facilities may be hired separately or all together as a complete package.
CORONAVIRUS – COVID-19
LATEST UPDATE FROM THE TRUSTEES OF
THE LEIGH AND BRANSFORD MEMORIAL HALL : AUGUST 2021
Thank you for visiting our website and considering us as a venue for your future hire.
The Hall is now OPEN, in line with the government’s Road Map out of Lockdown.
However, the pandemic is not over. Vigilance must be maintained and the trustees are maintaining a weekly cleaning regime of the building to help minimise the risk of transmission and spread of the virus. That said, the trustees have made it clear that any one wishing to hire the hall and/or field does so at their own risk and must abide strictly to the published Terms and Conditions, (including our additional Covid-19 T&Cs) at all times – i.e. before, during and immediately after the event.
Hirers (and their guests) are therefore asked to make informed decisions about the events they wish to hold and to act carefully and proportionately to manage both the risks to themselves and their guests/attendees, during all such events.
The UK government continues to issue guidance on how to minimise the risks to yourself and others, and how to continue to stay safe following the lifting of most restrictions on Monday 19 July, 2021. You are recommended to keep yourself informed by consulting this guidance which may be found at: https://www.gov.uk/guidance/covid-19-coronavirus-restrictions-what-you-can-and-cannot-do
So, if you are considering hiring our community facilities, please be sure to take a moment to read through the current government guidance together with our own T&Cs which you can find by clicking the USEFUL INFO tab on our website and then selecting TERMS & CONDITIONS at the drop down menu. Alternatively, you can access our T&Cs (including the additional Covid-19 T&Cs) here: http://leighandbransfordhall.co.uk/wp/tc/
In the meantime you can still contact us by email with any queries regarding a booking you have already made or a future booking you hope to make later in 2021 or beyond. Our email address is firstname.lastname@example.org
AN IMPORTANT FINAL NOTICE
As we all now live with the ever-present threat that the virus will, in all probability continue to spread and mutate our additional Covid-19 Terms and Conditions of Hire will continue to apply UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE. This is to protect you, your guests and those that maintain the building and future guests. All future bookings will require you to acknowledge that you have read, understand and agree to be bound by these additional terms.
Finally, thank you for your patience during these difficult times.

(This update – August 2021)
The Small Hall – part of the original memorial hall – measures approximately 6.1m x 11.9m and has a large storeroom at the one end. It has capacity for up to 150 people; its own dedicated set of toilets; folding doors that link to the Large Hall and easy access to the central kitchen (with serving hatches); bar area (with serving hatch); entrance lobby and furniture storeroom.
The Large Hall – part of a later extension to the original building – measures approximately 8.5m x 16.4m and has a large, curtained stage area at the one end. It has capacity for up to 160 people, its own separate entrance lobby and toilets; folding doors that link to the Small Hall and easy access to the central kitchen; bar area (with serving hatch) and stage with rear door access.
Both halls may be hired together, which is ideal for larger gatherings; they can accommodate up to 310 people. The folding doors between the two halls gives greater flexibility to create separate and distinct areas for the different activities that may be taking place at your event, i.e. eating and dancing, etc. You get exclusive use of the whole building and its facilities for the duration of your hire.
Our Wedding Package gives you exclusive use of the entire community hall complex, (both halls; both sets of toilets; the lobby; central kitchen with serving hatches; bar room and field) from 1pm on the Friday through to 1pm on Sunday. Plenty of time to decorate; dress the tables prior to the Reception and to clean and clear away on the Sunday. Contact us if your wedding doesn’t fall over a weekend.
To the front of the halls we have a flat field of approximately 2 acres set in area that is ideal for sporting parties, sports clubs, bouncy castle parties, car boot sales, BBQs or even events that require a marquee. The field can be hired with either hall or stand-alone. Access for vehicles, if required, can be made available through a separate gateway. See our FAQs for more details about hiring the field.
There is, subject to availability, space for up to 5 caravan pitches to be booked at any one time in this beautiful location. Access to the camping field is through a securely locked gate from the car park. Fresh water from a mains tap is offered to top up your caravan water, but there are no onsite washing or toilet facilities unless you are attending an event that is booked at the Hall. Pitches for tents can also be made available.
