About North Kessock Village Hall (Also known as NKVH)

Scottish Charity Number SC047939

The North Kessock Village Hall is the heart of our community.  Situated in a quiet setting on the banks of the Beauly Firth, it offers an ideal venue for all events and occasions.  Private parties, public meetings, child-based activities, keep-fit, yoga, badminton, junior football, dance classes, quiz nights, community markets, mind, body and soul events, wedding receptions, dances, charitable and fundraising events, craft fairs, ceilidhs, sporting events, and corporate events have all hired the hall.

Built in 1971, the hall is a popular venue for all.

The Main Hall seats up to 120 people, or a maximum of 200 standing (this includes helpers and performers and is in line with fire regulations).  The main hall has a wheelchair ramp at the main door, but it is unsuitable for all disabled users.  Please enquire prior to booking.  The hall is fully licensed for public entertainment.

The Committee Room seats 12–15 but has no disabled access. 

The kitchen is fully equipped and ideal for catering.  (No glasses are provided.)

There is a small private car park with parking for approximately 25 vehicles.  Please note that there is NO overnight parking.

A defibrillator is available on the outside wall by the entrance to the hall.  No access code is required.

Fair Work First

This statement confirms North Kessock Village Hall's commitment to ensuring fair working practices are in place in support of ‘Fair Work First’.

Fair Work First is the Scottish Government's flagship policy for driving high quality and fair work across the labour market in Scotland by applying fair work criteria to grants, other funding, and contracts being awarded by and across the public sector, where it is relevant to do so. Through this approach, the Scottish Government is asking employers to adopt fair working practices, specifically:

  • Payment of at least the real Living Wage.
  • Providing appropriate channels for effective workers’ voice, such as trade union recognition.
  • Investment in workforce development.
  • No inappropriate use of zero hours contracts.
  • Action to tackle the gender pay gap and create a more diverse and inclusive workplace.
  • Offer flexible and family friendly working practices for all workers from day one of employment
  • Opposing the use of fire and rehire practices
