Savill Hall

The Savill Hall 1926
Cattistock's 2020 Christmas Tree

The Savill Memorial Hall is situated in the centre of the village opposite the Fox & Hounds pub.

The hall was constructed in 1926 by Maude Savill of Chantmarle in memory of her brother Frank Savill, who died in 1916 and is buried in the churchyard. His name is amongst those on the war memorial, and there is also a commemorative window in the church’s South Chapel which is dedicated to him by his mother and sisters.

It is used weekly for sports activities like badminton, short-mat bowls, and table tennis. It is also used monthly by the W.I and bi-monthly by the Parish Council. Other uses are for wedding receptions and wakes, as well as children’s parties, talks, films and presentations (a large screen is available). The hall is the centre of activities for the annual fete week.

The hall is appointed with a commercial kitchen (including dishwasher), and a main hall with stage and PA system.


The hall is managed & maintained by a committee of Trustees drawn from the organisations that use the hall facilities.
