Claverton Down Community Hall is located on the eastern outskirts of the City of Bath World Heritage Site adjacent to open countryside, the Green Belt, the Cotswolds Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and the Bath Conservation Area. It is circled red on the map below, lies within the Parish of St Mary's, Claverton, has served the local community since 1958 and is registered with The Charity Commission (No. 304478).
The Hall hosts a wide variety of activities throughout the week and at weekends - click on 'Activities & Events' above for latest details. It is also available for private bookings at competitive rates - click on ‘Book Your Event' to access our Online Booking System. Forthcoming activities and events are also listed below. The Hall is very popular, so please give the Booking Secretary as much notice as possible. There are 30 marked parking spaces - including two for the disabled - and frequent bus services (to/from the University of Bath) stop outside.
The main body of the Hall measures 14.7 by 7.75 metres. There is a raised Stage area with a Committee Room beyond. The main facilities are on one level and are fully accessible. However, the Stage and Committee Room are accessed via steps. A hearing loop is available in the Hall and a Heat Pump heating system was installed in Summer 2021. The hall was extensively redecorated and new curtains, including stage curtains, installed in Summer 2022. There are sufficient tables and chairs to seat approximately 90 people.
A boules/petanque facility is available within the grounds. The main entrance incorporates a ramp leading to a large entrance space, toilets (including for the disabled) and baby-changing facilities. There is also a small kitchen with facilities for warming food (only). A defibrillator is installed just outside the main entrance doors.
Please note that family celebrations and parties for children up to primary school age, supervised by parent(s) or guardian(s), are welcome. From past experience we do not allow parties attended by unsupervised teenagers or young adults below the age of 25.
The Hall Management Committee comprises local residents (who are also trustees of the Charity) and meets quarterly, with an Annual General Meeting held in March. Please contact the Chairman or Secretary if you are interested in joining the Committee as we always welcome prospective new members.
