Tyninghame Village Hall

Tyninghame Village Hall is a listed building in the centre of a unique conservation village in the beautiful East Lothian countryside.

For many years the hall has provided a stunning setting for a wide variety of indoor activities from wedding ceremonies and art classes to children’s parties and craft fairs.

This lovely banqueting hall – originally the village bakehouse, remodelled in 1842 – with its centrepiece log fire, south-facing windows and views across the Lammermuir Hills, provides a stunning and magical location for any event.

Tyninghame Village Hall, EH42 1XL, is 2 miles east of the picturesque village of East Linton, 5 miles west of Dunbar, 7 miles south of North Berwick and approx 25 miles from Edinburgh.

Tyninghame Village Hall is a registered charity: SCO47531

Refurbishment update

Despite the hall being closed due to Covid-19 restrictions, we are keeping busy. The Tyninghame Village Hall Committee has made a commitment to make improvements to the village hall. For further information on the refurbishments please see here.

We hope to be able to open up the hall again from 9 May 2021 when the refurbishments should be completed and restrictions have eased.

We would like to reassure all our future users that we take your safety very seriously. We have put in place a number of new hygiene and safety measures in the Hall to help prevent the spread of COVID-19. We ask all those hiring and using the Hall to observe the current guidance on numbers attending Hall events, social distancing measures, the wearing of face-masks, etc. Documents relating to hire of the Hall can be found on the Booking Terms and Conditions page.

Bat Survey

In February 2021 we insulated the central roof structure. Prior to this work, we commissioned a Bat Survey to find out if and where we had bats roosting in the Hall and what measures would be needed to protect them. You can read the full report here

Burns Night 2021

Covid restrictions prevented us from hosting our usual Burns Night supper in the hall. Instead we decorated the village bus shelter in true tartan style.

Villagers were invited to hang their favourite Burns quotes or art on the tartan backdrop and children were encouraged to create a piece of art that represents a favourite Burns poem. We also put out a quiz to celebrate the life and work of Rabbie Burns. Anyone could pick up a copy and have a go. Here are the answers.

Covid-19 Helpline
