The Village Hall (aka the Kingston Room) sits by the green, in the centre of the village and at the heart of the community. It was originally built as a bible school in 1843, but has evolved over the generations to become a meeting place for many village groups, as well as a venue for exercise classes, drama and other events. It's licenced for up to 60 people and has a well-equipped kitchen, accessible facilities and a good stock of chairs and tables. Since 2016, the Committee of volunteers has been working on ambitious plans to improve and refurbish the building, to keep the facilities attractive, available and vibrant for years to come. To book the hall, call Nigel Walter on 01672 870 740 or contact Nigel Baldock.
Sports Ground and Shalbourne Pavilion
Shalbourne's beautiful Sports Ground is at the centre of sporting and community life. Home to successful cricket and football teams, tennis, petanque and croquet clubs, it also hosts several large events such as the Classic Car Show and May Day Fair.
In 2015/16, the Shalbourne Club, which runs the Sports Ground, raised more than £240,000 to build a new Pavilion, which opened in April 2017. With fully equipped catering facilities and changing rooms, the Pavilion is further enhanced by a spacious main hall, with glass doors opening directly onto the Sports Ground and its magnificent views.
