History of the Filkins Village Hall
Filkins Village Hall, known formally as the Carter Institute after its founder and benefactor, Mrs Amelia Carter, is a thriving and popular venue for village and private functions, parties and shows.
It was originally built in 1912 as a temperance establishment, but the rules have since been relaxed a little! Facilities include the main hall, with modern portable staging, a kitchen and bar area, green room, cloakrooms and a smaller meeting room upstairs.
There is limited car parking at the rear of the Hall.
The Institute is managed by a Committee made up of elected members and representatives of all the principal organisations in Filkins and Broughton Poggs which make regular use of the Hall.
