Main Hall

The main hall at Bracklesham Barn has been beautifully designed with a high ceiling and wooden beams to mimic the warm atmosphere of a Sussex Barn. Although this hall serves as a busy meeting place for the immediate community in Bracklesham and the Witterings, we warmly welcome visitors and users from Chichester, West Sussex and beyond.

A multi-use community hall to hire near Chichester

The hall is 18m x 9m and has a stage at one end. The sprung wooden floor of the hall makes it ideal for sports or dancing and the changing rooms behind the stage area allow hall users to get changed for their activity in privacy and comfort. The ceiling is high with stage spotlights fitted so that dramatic productions are able to be professionally lit. Actors and actresses can use the changing rooms to prepare and there are also two separate dressing rooms with their own showers for the stars of the show! A comprehensive sound system lets you play music through your iPod or from a CD, use a wireless microphone or even do both at once.

A party venue for all seasons

The space is open and airy with glass windows and doors down one side which can be opened up onto a paved area overlooking the fields adjacent to the barn. This is perfect for summer gatherings and wedding receptions, with the open area allowing guests to enjoy the fresh air to the side of the barn which is sheltered from the prevailing wind. In the evening or winter, the plush blue velvet curtains of the main hall create a cosy ambience inside the hall making it the perfect place to hold evening parties, film shows or dramatic productions.

Hire the hall for sit-down receptions

Wedding receptions or formal dinners can be held easily and comfortably in the hall. There are tables, chairs, crockery and cutlery capable of catering for up to 100 guests, although we need to discuss exact numbers with you to ensure guidelines are met. The hall has a catering hatch through to the commercial kitchen for ease of service. We do not provide a catering service, but all the facilities are available for you to hire.

Hall Furniture

There are 10 round tables (5’6″), 20 rectangular tables, 10 square tables and 150 seats available free to hirers of the main hall. Please ensure that you have enough time and manpower to put out tables and chairs and to put them away into storage after use.
