The Village Hall is a traditional village hall building, situated in the heart of Brampford Speke.

If you are looking for a venue for activities such as art classes, yoga, pilates, please do contact Molly Luxton (contact details above) to talk through whether the hall might be suitable. We welcome bookings by private individuals and organisations from outside the village as well as from within the village.

Access for people of restricted mobility has now been improved with the provision of ramp access. There is a pull-in immediately next to the hall for use for loading & unloading. Visitors’ car parking is on a quiet road, about 50 yards away.

Directions: as you come into Brampford Speke from Exeter, drive past the church and on until you see the Primary School on your right and Sandy Lane on your left.  If you are a visitor, park somewhere near here and then walk up Sandy Lane until you get to the hall, on your right after about 50 yards.
