Casterton Village Hall, which celebrated its centenary in 2012, is on the A683 in the centre of the village and is a focal point for social events in the village.
Users should note that access to the hall is via the steps at the front of the building, which are lit and have substantial handrails. There is also a ramp at the side of the building which leads to the kitchen door. It is possible for mothers with pushchairs or those with limited mobility or vision to enter the building this way if they so wish, but the gradient of the slope makes unassisted access for wheelchair users difficult. There is a disabled toilet in the building.
The hall is in good decorative order, is suitable for a wide range of private or commercial events, and is available for hire by the hour.
There is limited parking on the road outside, but by kind permission of Sedbergh, Casterton Preparatory School users of the Village Hall are allowed to park in the school's Hollybush car park. To access this, take the small side road alongside the church, bear right after 50 metres, and the car park is on the left hand side.
It has chairs and tables for up to 72 people, and a well-equipped kitchen which includes a range cooker, fridge, and commercial dish-washer. There are table cloths. and a wide range of crockery, cutlery, wine glasses, tumblers etc for the maximum number of people.
For a formal lunch or dinner a 'comfortable' maximum is 50-60.
