Centenary Hall


The hall was named to mark the 100th anniversary of the founding of Burstow Parish Council when it was built in 1995 as a replacement for the old Jubilee Hall. It is a hub for many village activities and also contains the Parish Council office.


There are three different sized rooms available to accommodate a wide variety of functions, as depicted in the table below.

Assembly Hall

This is the largest room with a ceiling height of 5m. The hall currently has a polished maple-wood sprung floor. There are ample power points and a ventilation system.

There is hatch access to a large adjoining kitchen, fully equipped to heat and serve pre-prepared food. It has two ovens, a microwave and a refrigerator.

Outwood Room 1

The larger meeting room with a ceiling height of 2.4m and a hatch to a small kitchen.


Outwood Room 2

A small meeting room that also serves as the council meeting chamber, again with a ceiling height of 2.4m.
The Outwood rooms are divided by a set of movable panels.
