Weddings

Cookley Village Hall is the perfect location for a wedding reception or other function

Our hall can comfortably accommodate up to 122 people seated at 11 large circular tables for 8 or 10 people with a top table seating up to 12 people. Alternatively, around 140 people can be accommodated using rectangular tables. This allows sufficient space for a dance floor area if entertainment is required. More people can be invited in the evening up to a maximum of 200 (recommended maximum is 175).

Cookley Village Hall is the perfect location for a wedding reception or other function. The hall is located in the pleasant village of Cookley, 3 miles north of Kidderminster, Worcestershire. The Hall itself is situated in leafy Lea Lane on the edge of the village in a quiet location, surrounded by playing fields with countryside beyond. There is ample free car parking on site and St Peters Church is just a 3 minute walk away. There are good transport links with the M42 and M5 only 11 miles away and Kidderminster railway station is only 3 miles away.

There is a generous sized stage for entertainment. A kitchen is available for private use or for professional caterers and has a small oven and fridge. The oven is not for full food preparation but can be used for re-heating. A private bar is available and will be staffed by our own employees.
