Burpham Village Hall and Recreation ground
​The Perfect Venue for your Wedding or Function

Burpham Village hall is located in the heart of Burpham Village adjacent to both the Village church of St. Mary and the George Pub.  It is situated overlooking the Sussex Weald towards Arundel Castle and fronts the village cricket pitch.  Nestling in the South Downs NationalPark, Burpham can be reached 3 miles along a country lane just off the main A27 coast road and near to Arundel Railway Station.

The hall has a maximum capacity of 180 standing and 100 sitting. The adjacent store houses the furniture which consists of 12 rectangular tables and 6 large round tables and 100 concert style chairs. The hall is ideal for weddings, parties and dances and can be decorated by the hirer to the desired style of event.     We take large group bookings between 1st May and 30th September. 

There is disabled access to all areas.

The kitchen has a serving hatch into the main hall. Inside the 3 mtrs x 4 mtrs kitchen is a double oven electric cooker with an induction hob with 5 heating rings, professional electric plate/food warming cabinet, a commercial dishwasher, a kitchen sink and handwash sink. A large American style refrigerator is available as are the hot water and hot water urn.

Car parking is available outside in the adjacent car park. In the event that additional car space is required parking can be allowed on the village green (subject to conditions).

The village hall opens onto the village green overlooking the cricket pitch and Arundel Castle. This is an ideal location for a marquee or other outside event such as hog roast or BBQ.
