Ribchester Village Hall Riverside is adjacent to Saint Wilfrid's and is used by many groups, organisations and individuals, both locally and from the wider community. It has been a venue for celebrations after christenings, weddings, birthday parties and anniversaries, a venue for practising musicians, dog shows, summer balls and junior discos. Local firms have used it for company functions. It has been a base for visiting school parties and historical societies carrying out surveys in and around the village. It has been a polling centre, a health centre, an arts centre and a study centre for IT.
The Hall is run by a Hall Committee - Hilda Bentley 878480 is the Bookings Officer. It can be booked by a person or group.
The hall was recently renovated. This substantial project was made possible by grants from the Rural Development Programme for England (£47,000) and the Village Amenities Grant from Ribble Valley Borough Council (£5,000).Full details can be found on the halls web site here.
