Tyninghame Village Hall is a listed building in the centre of a unique conservation village in the beautiful East Lothian countryside. The Hall was originally the village bakehouse, remodelled in 1842. It provides a stunning and magical location for any event with its centrepiece log fire, south-facing windows and views across the Lammermuir Hills. The Village Hall is available for private hires and provides a stunning setting for a wide variety of indoor events including wedding ceremonies, funeral wakes, family and children’s parties as well as weekly classes and monthly craft fairs.
The Village Hall also plays a central role in village life since it is the only covered communal space in the village where local people can meet and hold events. It is leased long-term from the Earl of Haddington to the Tyninghame Village Hall and Community Committee who is responsible for the upkeep of the Hall interior and for its hire and community use. Tyninghame Village Hall and Community is a charitable organisation (estab 2017, charity no. SCO47531) that advances community development through the use of the Hall so that people can come together and participate in various social activities and events.
The Tyninghame Village Hall and Community Committee involves up to 12 local residents who are passionate about community connection, social inclusion, sustainability and local heritage. The office bearers are elected each year at the Annual General Meeting and new members are welcomed throughout the year.
The membership of the Committee elected for 2022/23 was as follows:
