Lady Margaret Village Hall reopens after extensive refurbishment
10 January 2022
Lady Margaret Hall on the Welbeck estate has reopened after an extensive refurbishment.
Sitting within the historic
estate that surrounds Nottinghamshire’s Welbeck Abbey, on the edge of Sherwood Forest, the newly renovated community venue boasts a large hall, kitchen, stage, bar area and adjoining field, making it the perfect location for events and occasions.
Originally built in the 1950s, this community hall is an ideal venue for residents from the surrounding villages and communities to use for wedding receptions, meetings, dances, parties, groups and events no matter how large or small.
The transformation of Lady Margaret Hall forms part of the Welbeck estate’s long-term plan to build a creative and sustainable community through the development of its heritage buildings.
Darren Ridout, Head of Land Regeneration and Planning at the Welbeck Estates Company Limited, said:
“Welbeck is partway through a long-term programme to bring many of the estate’s historic buildings back into use. Breathing new life into these buildings means we can ensure the estate will thrive well into the future. Throughout the project, we have ensured that labour was sourced from local businesses and organisations and we are proud to say we were able to recycle a large majority of the onsite construction waste as we continue to take responsibility for our sustainable footprint.
We’re looking forward to Lady Margaret Hall becoming a community hub for local residents. All the teams here at Welbeck are so pleased with the new look and we’re sure that future guests will feel the same way too.”
It has plenty of free parking and also provides facilities that include a stage, sound equipment, PA system, projector screen and Wi-Fi, making it a good option for corporate events too.
