Roydon Village Hall was erected as the Village Club in 1920 on land donated by Mr J Ford. The building funded by Mr R Scott. Both families had lost sons in WW1 and the ‘club’ was dedicated in their memory. Users of the Club paid an annual subscription and all types of facilities were offered including a bar and library. The hall has undergone two major refurbishment, in the 1970s the front building was demolished and the rear rooms added and more recently major interior refurbishment was undertaken including additional storage facilities.
The hall has recently had installed a defibrillator on the outside of the hall and is listed as an emergency shelter for the district.
The hall can hold a variety of activities and events and has hosted a barn dance, quiz nights, plays, parties, fairs and regular meetings.
