Welcome to Dersingham Village Centre
The Village Centre opened in October 2018 and is situated in the 'heart' of Dersingham, close to St Nicholas Church and the Carole Brown Health Centre. It is on the site of and incorporates part of a former historic building, which has been extended and refurbished to create a flexible community space. There is a spacious main hall, one of the largest in the area, together with two other meeting rooms and a central hub area. A large, fully equipped, kitchen is available to hirers. The Centre has a substantial gravel car park, with a pedestrian ramp up to automatic entry doors. Throughout the building attention has been paid to making everything as accessible as possible.
The venue is extensively used by local groups, ranging from exercise and dance to lacemaking, carpet bowls, arts and crafts and more. The Centre also hosts regular community events such as lunches, a pop-up coffee shop, the village cinema, talks with a guest speaker etc. Naturally, the main hall and meeting rooms are available for hire and have acted as a venue for such diverse uses as wedding receptions and children’s parties to a training centre for public sector professionals and voluntary organisations.

If you are planning to attend an exercise or dance group please check with the leader as to when the group is restarting.

The St Nicholas Hall
A view of the main hall at the Centre, set out for a community lunch. The hall can accomodate over 100 people and is well supplied with tables and chairs, thanks to the fundraising of the Dersingham Village Centre Association.
The Garden Room
The Garden Room is on the ground floor and has large windows that look out over the small garden area outside. The floor to ceiling windows make it a very light room and it benefits from recenly installed air conditioning.
The Hub Area
Situated between the main hall and the Garden Room, the Hub is a gathering space with small tables for coffee etc. There is a serving hatch from the kitchen.
The Loft is a smaller, upstairs meeting room. Access is via stairs or a lift and it has a small self-contained kitchen.
