New Venue - Harwell Village Hall

Our new venue is in a great location with easy access from the A34
Harwell is 2 miles west of Didcot, 6 miles east of Wantage, 13 miles south of Oxford and 16 miles north of Newbury.

The venue has two car parks.
The one at the front of the building is quite small so fills up quickly.
For those travelling from the north and east and entering the village from the A417 take your first turning left into Westfield to reach the rear car park.
Don't follow directions from your Sat Nav as this leads you to a dead end!
There are two car parks in Westfield - the first on your left is the recreational ground car park and the one further down on the right is at the rear of the village hall and there is a footpath to the hall.

The address for the venue is: -

Harwell Village Hall
High Street, Harwell, Oxfordshire OX11 0EX

If you enter Harwell from the Didcot direction you will find the village hall on your right as you proceed along the High Street. If the car park at the front of the hall is full simply drive past, follow the road as it bends to the right and take the first right into Westfield.

Following the success of our first tea dance at Harwell we are pleased to inform you that we will be using the larger hall for our next tea dance on Sunday 11 March.

We have our first freestyle at Harwell " Atomic" on Friday 16 March and we will be using both rooms.
