2022: A fabulous start to the year with 3 packed houses for the 9th Ecchinswell Panto, Snow White. Seasoned veterans of the panto were joined by a host of newcomers and lots of children to put on some wonderful entertainment - just what we needed after years of lock-down gloom! March saw the return of the Race Night - a fabulous evening for both the attendees and the Hall, with a massive £1,300 raised towards maintaining the Hall.
2021: Another COVID-hit year finally saw events return in October with a Halloween Dance, featuring live music from The Deltas and all the audience in full Halloween dress. Huge congratulations to the Hall committee for decorating the hall so splendidly. The Coffee Morning also held a Xmas sing-along with a fabulous turnout; free raffle and refreshments, live music and the Christmas tree helped create a wonderful atmosphere to thank all those who have supported the Coffee Morning throughout the year.
2020: In February we held another very successful Race Night, with ploughmans and bar. The hall was full. We are grateful to our sponsors of races and look forward to the time when we are able to hold another Race Night.
2019: The year kicked off in fine style with the 8th Ecchinswell Pantomime, 'Cinders', playing to three sold-out houses in January, raising over £3,400 for Hall funds.
March saw another successful Race Night, and attendees enjoyed a ploughmans and in April we held our popular quiz evening, with a raffle and a supper with a choice of fish/chicken/sausage or vegetarian dish and chips. Both events were well attended with over 80 people at each and raising over £1000 towards the maintenance and refurbishment of the village hall.
In October we held a cabaret evening, with Clem Johnson singing and many attendees dancing. A ploughmans was provided and the bar was very popular.
2018: This was a successful year with all events being well attended: these included our Race Night, Quiz and Open Gardens held in July.

Our thanks to everyone who supported these events.

The Masquerade Ball held in September was a phenomenal success and a fantastic evening was had by all with prizes galore. Our thanks to all local people and businesses that helped to make this event such a success - raising over £2,000 for the village hall.
