TIXALL & INGESTRE
VILLAGE HALL 
 
  The village hall stands within the Conservation Area in the centre of the village opposite the church. It was built in 1850 on land given by Lord Shrewsbury. The school closed in the early 1900s and in the 1950s the building was extended with the addition of a kitchen, internal toilets and a committee room at the back.
 
The Village Hall

   From this time the building was used as a Church Hall, but was still officially Tixall Old School with the Rector and Churchwardens as Trustees, and Lichfield Diocese and Lord Shrewsbury also having possible claims to the building if it was sold. In November 2002 a new, separate Charitable Trust was set up with 8 Hall Trustees: 2 trustees appointed by the Parish Council, and 2 by each of Ingestre and Tixall Parochial Church Councils. Two additional trustees have been co-opted as allowed in our Trust document.

        The Hall is an ideal venue for family and children's parties and other social events. It is also available for seminars and training sessions.
