Recreation Hall
East Street, HU17
In 1918, when soldiers returned from the First World War, a local landowner donated land for a hall for the use of these lads and other people in the village. Leven Recreation Hall was opened on East Street in 1921.

It is a typical village hall and a very important part of the community, being host to many of the villages' activities including parties, meetings, weddings etc. The 'tin shed' (as it is affectionately known) has seen substantial refurbishment over the years and has been awarded prizes for the work undertaken. It can safely accommodate 100 people and is wheelchair friendly.

The Hall is available for hire to Leven residents for clubs, societies or family gatherings.

Room Bookings can be secured by phoning Des or Margaret Wilkinson on 01964 544 883
