Village Hall

 Welcome to the Village Hall page of our village website.  Here you will find general information about the hall:  history, committee members, facilities and making a booking.


Preston Capes Village Hall was founded in July 1939 on land given by the Knightley’s of Fawsley. The wrought iron lantern over the door of the hall was provided by villagers to commemorate the Coronation of HM Queen Elizabeth II in 1953. In 2003, to celebrate the new Millennium, a specially-commissioned brass sundial was placed on the wall above the front door of the village hall.  This was paid for by donations from local organisations, businesses and individuals, plus a grant from Daventry District Council.


The kitchen includes an electric oven, microwave, electric urn, refrigerator and dishwasher. The purpose-built bar area has a drinks refrigerator, and a skittles table and dartboard are available by prior arrangement. The hall has full disabled access, including a unisex wheelchair-usable toilet.

If you require further information regarding facilities and equipment, please contact Rachel Bracher at
