East Boldre Village Hall

Main Road, East Boldre, Brockenhurst, SO41 7WD, Hampshire, England

East Boldre Village Hall is situated on open heathland in the New Forest National Park within the picturesque village of East Boldre. The historic building with a lovely stage was built in 1918 as part of the Royal Flying Corps training airfield during WW1 and is the only remaining military building left on this old airfield. It was built as a concert hall by the YMCA, later taken over by the NAAFI and has come to be known as the ‘Officers’ Mess”. For the last 100 years, the building has been used variously as a parish hall, a church hall and a village hall. During WW2, it was used as a base by the local Home Guard.

East Boldre is approximately two miles from Beaulieu. The Village is on a rural by-road and there is little traffic, making it a safe and and quiet spot. It is often used by groups walking or hiking in the New Forest. The Village Shop and Post Office is well stocked with food, drink and almost all the basic items you may need. The Turfcutters Arms is about a further 200 metres down on the same side as the Hall and can be accessed either by road or by walking around the back across the heath. It serves wonderful restaurant and bar meals and a number of local ales. It has a large garden.
