What a coup for Quatt!

A village hall that was built over 100 years ago has won a prize at the inaugural Ticketsource Rural Touring Awards. Quatt Village Hall was built in 1908 for the village, in memory of Susan the wife of Geoffrey Charlton Wolryche-Whitmore of Dudmaston Hall. It was once used as the local school, but is now more accustomed to welcoming touring singers and actors – which is how the venue has managed to claim the title of ‘Most Welcoming Village Hall’ at the new awards.

The hall is run by voluntary village trustees for the benefit of the community. Over the years, fundraising and grants have allowed them to extend the building, adding a new kitchen, a computer suite and meeting room. It is fully accessible and can host up to 100 people – and, according to secretary Steph Hinton, “the win must have something to do with the delicious scones and cakes which touring companies often comment on!”
