Riverside Hall, BamptonRiverside Hall is one of the two “village halls” in Bampton. Downstairs it offers a large space which is particularly suited to physical activities, like dancing. It has a sprung wooden floor designed to absorb physical energy and provide a comfortable experience for users.
It has a stage at one end and can house a large seated audience on new comfy chairs (about 100 people). It is the home of the Bampton Players drama group and the monthly Cinema.There is a kitchen and bar and approved facilities for indoor shooting.
There is acoustic panelling and a loop for people who are hard of hearing. It is possible to drive right up to the door for off-loading and there is level access for wheelchair users though not, at present, a WC designed for them. Riverside's own car park is on the opposite side of Brook Street which you are invited to use in return for a donation.

Though the main hall is ideal for large audiences it is also suitable for smaller gatherings like talks, presentations and committee meetings especially AGMs and those open to the public. Upstairs the Albert Fowler Room is set up for committee meetings and is available from a minimum of one hour at £5 hourly.
