Social Club

The Beoley Village Hall Social Club holds a variety of events throughout the year.  In the winter period, from October to April, there is the Skittles League and Knockout Cup - currently involving 12 teams of 8 competitors.

We hold other special events, such as an annual Quiz Night and evenings featuring music groups or comedians.  Since January 2013, we have been running a monthly "Trad" Jazz night - on the 4th Wednesday of the month.

There is an occasional Village Cinema night - on the 3rd Tuesday of a month, when we run it. This is an ideal opportunity to come and watch some of the top films, recently released, with free popcorn and peanuts. The bar is open and we encourage everyone to stay on after the film to socialise and discuss the film.

Keep coming back to this page, from time to time, to see announcements of forthcoming events.
