The village hall offers a large hall area; a stage, spacious fitted kitchen; a meeting room; a digital projection system; WiFi, disabled access and disabled toilet facilities and a hearing loop system.
The hall is available for wedding receptions, parties, club meetings, social and community events, horticultural shows, charity events, concerts, plays and barn dances.
Regular users include the Wolvercote Womens' Institute, Wolvercote Horticultural Society, Wolvercote Historical Society, local drama groups and local musicians as well as sports, yoga and dance groups. It is also the main venue for the annual Wolvercote Summer Festival.
It was one of the first community buildings in Oxfordshire to have solar photovoltaic panels to generate electricity which is used in the hall. When the building is not in use the electricity generated is sold back to the National Grid. The money raised in this fashion will be used to carry out further environmental improvements to the hall.
We have recently upgraded the hall's sound system which now has loudspeakers suitable for use by musicians and singers as well as by groups organising talks, lectures and public meetings.
We have also introduced a wireless digital hub which allows easy access to the Internet within the hall for those hirers who require it. There are sockets for iPods and tablets which allow hirers to play music via the speaker system. We have recently added Bluetooth connectivity which allows hirers to play audio through the sound system wirelessly.
During the summer of 2016 we upgraded the hall's lighting to allow for more flexibility for users. The hall now has dimmable LED pendant lights replacing the old fashioned strip lighting as well as programmable colour changing LEDs which cover the walls and ceiling. The new lighting system will also use less electricity as well helping to create a more intimate atmosphere for parties and wedding receptions.
In April 2019 we installed a digital projector system following requests from several regukar hiriers. This is available for use by hiriers at a small extra cost.
2012 marked the village hall's 80th anniversary and to celebrate we created a special plaque made by local stonemason Nick Vincent and a stained glass window made by Wolvercote artist Phillip Dove. If you or someone you know has any old photographs or information about the hall's history, please get in touch with the management committee.
