At the heart of the community
The village hall is the hub of the local community with activities and events taking place every day of the week.
As well as a weekly programme of regular clubs and classes for all ages, the hall is used for private functions, and for all kinds of events that are open to the public. It is also home to Little Big Screen, Gullane's community cinema.
Birthday parties, ceilidhs, quiz nights, a wedding, fundraising events, drama workshops, dance classes, baby signing classes, team presentations, a pantomine and lots more have taken place in the hall in recent months!
With a large and a small hall and good facilities, including a well-equipped kitchen, a stage, and audio visual equipment, it’s the ideal flexible venue for all kinds of events, with low hourly rates.
Run by the community
The day-to-day running of the hall is lead by a committee of trustees, and bookings are managed by a bookings secretary. In addition a whole host of local people volunteer their time and services to do everything from running fundraising events for the hall, to doing fire maintenance checks, deep cleaning, putting the bins out, cleaning the windows and much more.
Funded by the community
The village hall is a registered charity - Gullane Community Association - and is entirely self-financing. Income is raised through booking fees, charitable donations and grants, and regular fundraising events. These fundraisers include:
the biennial village pantomime
the annual apple festival
the biennial village Burns' supper
and donations generated by Little Big Screen
