Mortimer Hall is situated along Oxford Road in Old Marston Village, near the junction of Cherwell Drive and Marston Ferry Road, and next to the recreational ground.
In the late 1950s there was a need for a village hall to serve the community of Old Marston. The working men’s club was gone and the old reading room building had fallen into a poor state of repair and was marked for demolition. Members of the community worked hard to raise the funds for a new building. The building was erected on land belonging to the parish council on the edge of the recreational ground, which was also used as a cricket green. The building was opened in 1962. Go to our archives page for more history and pictures.
The hall is a registered charity (304331) run by a management committee of volunteer trusties help maintain the facility and manage the bookings.
Today we have different groups and organisations who have regular bookings. In addition we are available for hire. We have a large hall with a stage, an outside enclosed area, car parking, a small meeting room.
The current trusties are:
