Filkins Village Hall, known formally as the Carter Institute after its founder and benefactor, Mrs Amelia Carter, is a thriving and popular venue for village and private functions, parties and shows.
It was originally built in 1912 as a temperance establishment, but the rules have since been relaxed a little! Facilities include the main hall, with modern portable staging, a kitchen and bar area, green room, cloakrooms and a smaller meeting room upstairs.
There is limited car parking at the rear of the Hall. For SATNAV the Village Hall postcode is GL7 3JQ.
The Institute is managed by a Committee made up of elected members and representatives of all the principal organisations in Filkins and Broughton Poggs which make regular use of the Hall.
Risk assessment has been completed, the Village Hall is a Covid-secure facility and a Covid-statement will be sent out to the hirers.
