Burpham Village Hall West Sussex
Our lovely village Hall is available for bookings for small and large groups

We have a restricted quota for large weddings in 2020, and
we have filled our limit.  We are taking wedding bookings for 2021.


Burpham Village Hall is located in the heart of Burpham Village adjacent to both the Village church of St. Mary and the George Pub.  It is situated overlooking the Sussex Weald towards Arundel Castle and fronts the village cricket pitch.  Nestling in the South Downs National Park, Burpham can be reached 3 miles along a country lane just off the main A27 coast road and near to Arundel Railway Station. Our postcode is BN189RR.

The village hall opens onto the village green overlooking the cricket pitch and Arundel Castle. This is an ideal location for a marquee or other outside event such as hog roast or BBQ. We don't allow music events in marquees, however. Music must be played within the Hall.
