About the Village Hall

Gristhorpe & Lebberston Village Hall has recently undergone a total refurbishment after falling into disrepair over the years through lack of use and investment.  Today, however, the village hall is thriving and is a wonderful asset for both villages to use and enjoy.  We have an active committee who are committed to raising funds to further improve the hall, secure regular bookings and provide a lively program of entertainments.

Annual Summer and Christmas fetes are a big success, raising funds for further improvements.  Ceilidh nights and quiz nights are held along with an annual Macmillan Coffee Morning.

In addition there are regular Tai Chi and Fitness classes, coffee mornings and craft afternoons.  Our local choir, Village Voices, hold their weekly practice in the village hall and regular concerts are enjoyed by all who attend. The village hall is also hired out for celebrations, meetings, classes and other events.


Our History

Gristhorpe & Lebberston Village Hall was first opened in 1937.  One of the groups who regularly used the hall was Gristhorpe & Lebberston Women’s Institute.  Here’s a photo of their Garden Fete dating from 1953. The photo was taken at the rear of Ebor House, Main Street, Gristhorpe.

Birthday  parties and functions were regularly held and the village hall was the hub of both villages. (Pictured) A 21st Birthday Party circa 1957 in honour of Miss Beryl Bowes, Cliff Farm, Gristhorpe.
