Dereham Memorial Hall is a multi-purpose venue with a 294 capacity proscenium arch at it's heart. Our theatre-style seating can be swiftly packed away, revealing a beautiful oak dance floor beneath. This flexibility allows us to have a varied range of events and is ideal for shows, concerts, wedding receptions, parties, presentation evenings and much more!

Above the stage and auditorium is a versatile lighting rig with everything needed to provide atmospheric lighting for dance or more subtle lighting for corporate presentations.

From an audio perspective everything is included to provide adequately balanced sound for the venue, ensuring a pleasurable listening experience covering everything from rock to opera!

"Everyone had a great time on Saturday night and were all complimentary about the hall. I just wanted to convey a huge thank you to Mervyn and his team for all their help before and during, and to Ken for all his amazing help on the night"

Ms N ~ November 2019

"We had a fantastic day and so many people commented that they weren't aware how beautiful the building is."

Mr J ~ September 2019

"We had a fantastic party and all the staff were really friendly and helpful. We would definitely use the venue again."​

Mr H ~ March 2019

"I have not been to the Memorial Hall for many many years and was very impressed with the work that has been done to turn this into an excellent venue."

Mr H ~ October 2018

"We were most impressed with not only the venue but the helpfulness of the staff throughout. Not only on the evening but also insofar as the actual hiring of the venue.

The bar staff were not only helpful but were all smiles and nothing was too much for them to assist in ensuring that we all had a very pleasant evening. As everything went very smoothly it ensured that we had a very enjoyable and relaxed evening."

Mr P ~ June 2018
