About the Hall

Mickleton Village Hall was built in 1993, on the site of the no-longer-habitable 100 year old Church Institute. It’s a full-sized, award winning hall, built in one year entirely by the enthusiastic efforts of virtually everyone in the village. The Hall was formally opened by the Earl of Strathmore on Jan 1st 1994 and has been well used ever since. Its prime purpose is to serve the village and it’s three associated parishes; but its size and layout make it an ideal choice for private parties, weddings etc and business functions. It is also a popular venue for visiting theatre companies and musical events from R’n’B to choral concerts. It is used by a variety of clubs and organisations as well as Parish council meetings and much more besides. The hall is available for hire for: • Meetings/Seminars • Social Events • Wedding Receptions • Fairs and Sales • Rehearsals • Training • Functions • Parties • Dances • Sports Classes • Stage Productions/Concerts • Presentations with IT facilities Regular activities ongoing in the hall include the Cinema Club, Teesdale Day Clubs, stage productions and concerts and the extremely popular R ‘n’ B nights. To visit the MICKLETON LIVE website please click on the link below: http://mickletonlive.uk

The Village

Mickleton is a busy yet peaceful farming village in the valley beside the River Tees. The village has a population of around 350 and sits on what used to be the borders of the North Yorkshire Moors until the boundaries were redrawn to shift us into County Durham. But the views are still as beautiful! There are two thriving pubs, The Crown and the Blacksmiths Arms, a busy village garage, Mickleton Service Station, and a Post Office in the hall. ‘Beckstones Wath’ the new footbridge over the Tees – pictured above – with its connecting footpaths is becoming increasingly popular with walkers.

    Brief synopsis: England, 1959. Free-spirited widow Florence Green (Emily Mortimer) risks everything to open a bookshop in a conservative East Anglian coastal town. While bringing about a surprising cultural awakening through works by Ray Bradbury and Vladimir Nabokov, she earns the polite but ruthless opposition of a local grand dame (Patricia Clarkson) and the support and affection of a reclusive book loving widower (Bill Nighy). As Florence's obstacles amass and bear suspicious signs of a local power struggle, she is forced to ask: is there a place for a bookshop in a town that may not want one?
