Hook residents can book the large halls in both venues for as little as £17 per hour with amazing 3 hour children’s party rates starting at £29. Visit www.hookvillagehalls.org.uk for all the rates.

MORE VILLAGE HALLS EVENTS TO PUT IN YOUR DIARY
In addition to external organisations hiring the village halls, HVHCA also runs a few events and activities, which they hope to build on, to keep our village halls alive and vibrant and to help with fundraising.
On Sunday 9th September the Village Halls are joining forces with the Hook Allotment Association and Hook In Bloom to bring the village the Hook Flower & Produce Show and the Hook In Bloom presentation. Again another very popular village event. Look at the Hook in Bloom article to see how you too can get involved.
Tables are also being booked well in advance for our Music and Paella Evening on Saturday 22nd September. The tickets are just £20 per person and includes food and a live band from Guildford called The Famous Five. Plus there’s also a cash bar. The Famous Five band is very popular so the evening should be great fun.

Another popular event where tickets are selling well in advance is the Laughterhouse Comedy Night, on Saturday 20th October, which is being organised by Jan Jacks who runs the Basingstoke Laughterhouse Comedy Club. At the last comedy evening The Elizabeth Hall was filled with laughter and now the comedians have gauged Hook as an audience, this year’s should be even better.
