The Community Hall

Donegall Avenue, Roussillon Park, Chichester, PO19 6DF

A large open plan area measuring 13.5m x 7.10m (96 m² / 1031 ft²), with outdoor space nearby.

Overlooking the Green and children’s play area at Roussillon Park, the Community Hall is a wonderful, light, airy space that works well for a wide variety of community activities including sports like Zumba, pilates and yoga, club meetings, music and drama productions, exhibitions and receptions. The hall also makes a great meeting room for local businesses with everything you need on hand including Wi-Fi, printer, projector and screen. Of course the hall also lends itself very well to private functions such as children’s parties, birthdays, anniversaries, funerals and weddings.

The Community Hall is purpose-built and very well-equipped. It has its own kitchen facilities and can accommodate a range of room layouts, from boardroom to theatre style, through to a standing reception for 120 people.
