The front entrance now has a very accessible push
button entry door, wide enough for wheelchairs and double buggies. The
entrance, kitchen door and fire exit doors were upgraded in 2015; we
were very fortunate to secure funding towards the hall improvements and
repairs from Veolia North Thames Trust.
The hall is home to Orsett Playgroup, various clubs including Orsett
Women's Institute, badminton and indoor bowls, and is hired on a regular
basis by religious, dance, theatre and fitness groups. You can find out more about
who uses the hall by visiting the What's On page.

Orsett Village Hall now has midweek slots available
in the afternoon/early evening and Sunday evenings are also available
for weekly hire. If you are interested in setting up a new or
established club at our village hall on a regular weekly basis we would
