Speke Hall is the name of the Village Hall and is situated next to the church. It was built in 1840 as the village school and after its closure in 1949, was converted into the village hall for Dowlish Wake and nearby conurbations.
Full of character, this charming hamstone building is ideal for keep fit classes, parties, art, fundraising events and as a centre for those needing social assistance. It is also used as the village Polling Station.
It will seat 60 people comfortably and has a kitchen, a sprung wooden floor, good natural light, portable staging and off-street parking.
There are disabled access and disabled toilet facitities and the kitchen is also wheelchair friendly, making this a good place for carers as well.
Regular classes and clubs are held there including Pilates and bridge. The Parish Council also holds its meetings in the hall.
The Speke Hall Management Committee also holds regular events throughout the year, including village breakfasts and lunches for not only Dowlish Wake residents but also people from the more isolated rural conurbations nearby.
Please see the village events here on the website or read the "web" for forthcoming events.
