Horncliffe Memorial is only 4 miles inland from Berwick-upon-Tweed and was completed in September 1957 after the original village hall was destroyed by fire. The Hall is aiming to become an eco Hall having had solar panels for many years now, we have also installed a new lighting system using only LED lights and are replacing any remaining existing lights with LED bulbs. We use environmentally friendly cleaning products which are made by a resident of the village (Eileen’s Nuts) and the coffee is from a small local producer (Northern Edge Coffee). For large events vegware products will be used as these can be composted and break down within 3 months. We may only be a small village but our ethos is: every little helps.
The Hall, which has recently been refurbished, painted throughout and had new radiators installed (2020/2021), provides a light, airy and welcoming space with work by local artists displayed on the walls. There is space for up to 100 people and the hall can be hired at a cost of £8 per hour.
The Memorial Hall, which is licensed to sell alcohol, has a newly constructed bar (2021) made from parts of The Union Chain Bridge which has been undergoing a complete restoration. The bar is fully stocked and available for hire at a cost of £10 per hour, per member of staff.
We can also help you organise any special occasion and can also provide various buffets to suit your budget, with staffing and waitressing and service available at £10 per member of staff, as required.
In addition to the above we have a stage which can be hired and the Horncliffe Arts Society have a screen and projector available for hire. The latter to be agreed with Horncliffe Arts Society.
The spacious kitchen is equipped with a double electric oven, with grill and four ring hob. There is also a separate 4 ring ceramic hob, combi microwave, catering standard dishwasher, large warming cupboard and water heater. The kitchen also has crockery and cutlery for 100 covers, which is included in the rental price, but also available for separate rental.
A conservatory was added in 2012 and provides extra seating for up to 16 people and can be hired separately, @£5 per hour, from the Hall for smaller meetings.
