This was situated to the north of Virginia House in River Street and began to be used as a Parish Hall in 1898 after its previous life as a Malt House. For the next 90 years the Hall was the venue of very many entertainment and social events and of course for many different Carnival events. In the 1930s it was even home to Pewsey’s first Cinema and in WWII for making camouflage netting! As the years passed its condition began to deteriorate and its situation on a busy main road with little or no parking meant the time became ripe to build new Bouverie Hall.
