Literary Lunch with Penny Junor

Jubilee Hall

We are pleased to welcome acclaimed royal biographer, Penny Junor, to our next literary lunch in the Victoria Hall at 12.30pm on Friday 31st October.


 Penny will be talking about her new book, an authoritative look at the life of Prince Harry. This is the Prince Harry you’ve never read about before. Published in celebration of his thirtieth birthday, this is the story behind the tabloid stories. The prince who has the power to make or break. The maverick prince who is brilliant, impetuous and unpredictable. The prince who with his unique talents, charm and bloody-minded determination is changing lives across the world. But the prince who could, in a moment of madness, bring it all crashing down.


He is the redhead that Diana called “the spare”, whose childhood was one of chaos and loss; the little boy who broke our hearts walking behind his mother’s cortege. This is the story of how he survived the loss and chaos; how he lived in the shadow of his older, cleverer, more important brother – until suddenly he discovered there was something he could do better than almost anyone. This is the story of how a troubled teenager grew into a leader of men, a soldier, a pilot, an adventurer and a passionate champion of those who are in danger of being destroyed or forgotten.

Tickets are now on sale and cost £22.50 each, to include a light lunch and glass of wine. Telephone 07807 202339 or email

Jubilee Hall Opening celebrations

Jubilee Hall

The new Jubilee Hall attracted in excess of 400 visitors to view the completion of the main construction of the Jubilee Hall.

We were greatly honoured that Susan Band officially opened the hall and the Rev Arnold Bennett gave a blessing “for all those who had given their time and talent, skills and craftsmanship for the enrichment of the life of our community”.

The development scheme began in 1996 to restore and build the Victoria Hall including a new building linking the Parish Council offices with a modern foyer including a new meeting room and kitchen.
In 2002 the first phase was completed followed by an extensive upgrade of the stage including a state of the art computer-controlled lighting and sound system. The final phase has been the construction of the Jubilee Hall to replace the old wooden and asbestos hut.

The Victoria Hall Charity Trustees wish to express grateful thanks to the Parish Council, District Council and County Council, which have provided grants.

Very many thanks go to those parishioners who have been generous and made personal donations. We thank also all those volunteers who have made fundraising events possible by providing their talents and time and all those who have supported the fundraising events by participating.

A special thanks to our Halls Administrator Jan Phillips without whom we would not be so viable and successful, and finally very grateful thanks to all the Trustees past and present who have devoted their time freely for the benefit of all.

As a final plea we are requiring your financial support please to complete the scheme with fencing, landscaping, external lighting and security systems and to reduce our bank indebtedness.

If you can help us please pick up a gift form in the foyer, or call 01252 844 876.

Thank you to everyone for your support over the past 16 years, your new hall is ready for use.
Chris Francis.

The search for a place to call their home finally drew to a close on April 16th when Hartley Arts Group Chairman, Gary Wales handed over a cheque for £50,000 to The Victoria Hall Trustees as a donation towards the new Jubilee Hall, then under construction on the old Hut site at the rear of the Victoria Hall.


The Hartley Arts Group has been using the Victoria Hall and its stage for live performances for over 35 years. The construction of the new Jubilee Hall provides the additional facilities necessary for the full range of HAG activities including rehearsal and pre-staging, the HAG Rocks! Choir, play readings and also allows them scope to offer smaller, more experimental performances as well as providing the group with an administration office.

The Jubilee Hall has been in the planning process since 1996 when the scheme to restore the Victoria Hall and to add modern facilities was approved by the newly formed management committee. Construction of the hall is the final part of the original scheme to provide much needed facilities for the growing community of Hartley Wintney.


The Jubilee Hall will be one of the most modern green community halls in Hampshire constructed largely of timber from sustainable forests by DW King Builders Ltd of Alton. Funds have been raised over the past ten years through events, donations, grants and is supported with a bank loan. The Trustees are continuing their fundraising appeal and have compiled a shopping list of items for sponsorship.


Chairman of the Victoria Hall Charity Chris Francis stated “The donation of £50,000 from Hartley Arts Group is an indication of its’ strong relationship with the Victoria Hall Charity and the importance of partnerships between local organisations, providing the very best leisure facilities for the community to enjoy whether by participating or spectating.”
