The Alfriston War Memorial Hall

Probably one of the most attractive village halls in the region, the War Memorial Hall is located in the heart of our picturesque village of Alfriston, nestled in the South Downs National Park, next to St Andrews Church –  often referred to as ‘The Cathedral of the South Downs’.

The Main Hall has a beautiful oak floor, oak beams and doors opening onto a large patio, which in turn opens to The Tye (Alfriston's village green) with views across the Cuckmere river and the valley beyond. 


This is a truly wonderful venue, whether you wish to hold a wedding reception, party, conference or club meeting.

  • Main Hall can accommodate up to 150 people

  • Additional Committee Room suitable for up to 20 people

  • Disabled access - Free Wifi - modern facilities

  • Fully equipped kitchen

  • Panoramic views across The Cuckmere Valley

The Hall now has its own website - - please join them there.

Clubs using the Hall

Art Club, Line Dancing, Yoga, Short Mat Bowls, Horticultural Society, Alfriston Players, Bridge Club, Historical Society, the WI, ... the list is (almost) endless.


With such a stunning location, the Alfriston War Memorial Hall is a truly amazing space in which to hold a wedding reception or party.


The adaptable and spacious accommodation has bags of character, from the oak floor to the beautiful oak roof timbers.


The views from the Hall and adjoining patio are breathtaking, extending across the Cuckmere River and northwards along the Cuckmere Valley.


The original School Room was built on this site in 1810, which was joined in 1844 by the Schoolmaster’s House, the lovely flint cottage running across the front of the current Hall. In 1908 the use as a school ceased with the opening of the ‘new’ school in North Road which continues to flourish today.


The Hall was extended in 1972 and renamed The War Memorial Hall. The Hall underwent substantial alteration and refurbishment in the late 1990s with further improvements since and maintenance to a high standard. It provides a wonderful venue for all occasions.
