Albourne lies just north of the South Downs in a quiet rural location with some of the most splendid views in this area. The central and main part of the parish is called simply 'The Street' and amongst a great variety of residential buildings, from flats to mansions, there dwells the hives of activity - the primary school, the Millennium Garden and the VILLAGE HALL.

Built in 1977 after much hard work and fundraising by the villagers this building has become home to various regular users - including Albourne Under Fives Group, Puppy dog training sessions, the Parish council, Belly Dancing classes, Karate classes and the Pop Up Pub.

In addition the hall is available for individual uses for parties, discos, weddings, christenings, and many more activities.

Upgrades in recent years include the fitting of a new kitchen and refurbishing of the  interior walls and wood work and provision of new stage and hall curtains together with concealed overhead spotlights . This has given the hall not only a brighter cleaner look but a new lease of life. The table tops have been replaced with ten modern lightweight fold up tables and four coloured low tables for the children from fund raising events put on by the Village Hall Management. 
If you are looking for a venue for your event then what could be nicer than a newly redecorated and refurbished hall with its own car park and adjacent to the village recreation and playground lying in the countryside yet still within easy reach of Brighton, Crawley, Haywards Heath, Burgess Hill and other surrounding villages and towns.

In 2013, building works were undertaken and completed at the Hall to provide a disabled access, and toilet facility. In addition the ladies WC was refurbished. The management Committee obtained a grant through West Sussex County Council's Big Society Fund, and we are indebted both to WSCC, and to Councillor Peter Griffiths, our West Sussex County Councillor at the time, who helped steer the application through, and gave his wholehearted support to the project. The next phase of the Committee's plans was to provide a new and much more appropriate storage area within the Hall, so as to make much better use of the space. With the help of the Big Lottery Fund this work was completed in 2014 and redecoration was carried out in 2015.
