Wardington Memorial HallWardington Memorial Hall (OX17 1SL) was totally refurbished in 2013 and now offers one of the best village hall facilities in the north Oxfordshire area.

 The origins of the Memorial Hall date back almost a hundred years when the first Hall was built in 1920 to honour those who had given their lives in the Great War.

Sadly the first Hall was destroyed by fire shortly afterwards and was replaced on the current site in 1926.

Eighty years on the nineteen twenties building was well beyond its best-before date and it was decided in 2011 to carry out a total refurbishment resulting in the re-opening of the current Hall in early 2013.


The ownership and ultimate responsibility for the management of the Hall is vested in a charitable trust with the majority of the Trustees being village residents. The Hall was built on land gifted to the village by the the first Lord Wardington.

The Management Committee is again made up of village representatives who are formally elected annually with responsibility for managing the ‘provision of a facility for community and entertainment activities’ for the residents of Wardington.
