Our History

old village hall

Pannal Village Hall, originally called the Oddfellows Hall, was built in 1888.

On 24th May 1919, a parish meeting considered building a village institute in memory of the boys from the parish who had fallen in the first world war.

Instead, the villagers decided to approach the Society of Oddfellows about purchasing the existing Oddfellows Hall.

They agreed on a price of £600 , and on the 11th November 1920, the "Pannal Memorial Hall" was opened by Major Cross.

The memorial hall has served Pannal ever since.

Mr. Midgeley's Mason Band played for all the dances held there in the 1930s. Children's Christmas parties were held from 1928. There was the Pannal Women's Dramatic Society and during WWII films were shown for the troops stationed nearby. Since then, the hall has hosted baby health clinics, keep fit classes, children's play groups and countless other community activities.

After several extensions, the original memorial Hall is now known as the Snooker Hall, which contains plaques commemorating those who served in the two World Wars.

A service is held every November to remember them.
