Staindrop is one of County Durham’s green villages, with mainly eighteenth century stone houses surrounding a series of interlocking greens. In 1971 the centre of the village was designated a Conservation Area in order to secure its protection and improvement.
Scarth Memorial Hall in Staindrop village was built in 1875, in memory of Thomas Freshfield Scarth, land agent to the Dukes of Cleveland of Raby Castle.
Following an extensive programme of improvement and refurbishment the Hall now boasts a range of modern facilities including a cinema, IT suite, state-of-the-art kitchen, ramp access for wheelchairs and buggies, and stairlift access to the first floor. We offer a wide range of regular classes and activities, as well as one-off events.
It’s the perfect venue for receptions and gatherings for weddings, funerals, memorials, naming ceremonies, christenings, birthday parties, anniversary celebrations, and more.
Scarth Hall is also ideal for holding meetings, conferences, training courses and seminars. We have audio visual facilities in the main hall and the Training room, and free wifi throughout.
The large and well-equipped Hall can accomodate fairs and sales, rehearsals, concerts, stage productions, dance events and more. We can recommend local caterers, and we’ll provide a fully-licensed bar if required. See www.scarthhall.co.uk/book-the-hall

Comedy night with Alun Cochrane presented by Funny Way To Be
Alun Cochrane is a no-nonsense comedian who specialises in funny nonsense. Much of his comedy begins simply as something he’s seen, heard or felt in his own life, or in the street, or the kitchen, or anywhere and from that it blossoms into a highly amusing anecdote or a strange flight of fancy.
He has recently joined Frank Skinner’s Absolute Radio Show and can be heard every Saturday morning from 8am. Alun has several television appearances to his name, most recently Michael McIntyre’s Comedy Roadshow he’s also often seen on Eight out of ten cats, Mock The Week, and has appeared on Soccer A.M and Live At The Comedy Store.
Radio producers are also aware of Cochrane’s talent and he’s notched up various credits from Just A Minute, 4 Stands Up, and The Now Show to Clive Anderson’s Chat Room. Grumpy-joyful, silly-serious stand-up. Jokes, ideas and (possibly) movement will all be deployed for your amusement during this show.
Alun’s official tour description reads, “As seen on blah blah and blah, and heard on various funny radio shows.” Age restriction: suitable for 16+
