Charlton Down Village Hall  is a blend of old and new architecture. Updated in 2003 the complex caters to a wide range of events with accommodation to suit all activities and functions. All rooms are available for hire at reasonable rates.

The Village Hall is managed entirely by volunteers. Our role is to provide a village Hall for the Community and the many clubs, classes and groups that meet in the Village Hall each week.
We also host parties, Weddings, Conferences and meetings. We hope you will enjoy the marvellous facilities at our Village Hall by joining a club or supporting one of the many events held here.
We would wish to remind clients that Dorset County Council do not supply refuse bins to Village Halls and therefore all clients must remove their own rubbish after their event and not leave it on the premises or in the adjoining apartments rubbish bins.
