Mawnan Memorial Hall is the Village Hall in the centre of Mawnan Smith. Built in 1923, provides a venue for many organisations. It shows films and puts on theatrical entertainments with its link to Cornwall Art Trust’s Carn to Cove initiative. Many entertainers from other parts of the country do one-night stands, which are always well attended. It lies at the heart of the community, and is used approximately 500 times each year, with up to 60 lettings per month, and occasionally up to 3 in a single day. Almost all usage is by local organisations or individuals.
The Hall is operated as a charitable trust, and is kept in a good state of repair, to ensure that it is welcoming. Maintenance is funded from hire charges, which at the same time are kept as low as possible, to maximise its use.
