Lurgashall Village Hall re-opens on 3 August 2020

Good News!

 The Village Hall is re-opening

on Monday 3 August 2020…

…but only for those activities currently permitted by Government – and even those will need to follow strict social distancing & hygiene guidelines.

All this will become clearer as the weeks go by, but it is a rapidly changing landscape so please check with the Booking Secretary at admin@lurgashallvillagehall.org if you are considering organising an event at the Hall.

The re-opening story so far….

The Village Hall Management Committee has taken all steps necessary to ensure that the Hall is as Covid-19 safe as possible and it will continue to be maintained to a very high standard.

From the outset, hirers and users will have new responsibilities too.  These are set out in a Covid-related Addendum to our standard Terms & Conditions.

As Trustees, the Village Hall Management Committee has the right to approve those events which meet all Government rules and the Hall’s Covid-19 safety criteria – and to decline those which do not.

To sum up….  Lurgashall Village Hall is open for business – but it’s not quite ‘business as usual’ yet.

Winter 1968 and showbiz legend Judy Garland arrives in Swinging London to perform a five-week sold-out run at The Talk of the Town. It is 30 years since she shot to global stardom in The Wizard of Oz, but if her voice has weakened, its dramatic intensity has only grown. As she prepares for the show, battles with management, charms musicians and reminisces with friends and adoring fans, her wit and warmth shine through.

Featuring some of her best-known songs, the film celebrates the voice, the capacity for love, and the sheer pizzazz of “the world’s greatest entertainer.”
