The HVI dates back to 1924 and the brick and timber framed building is privately managed and maintained by a village committee.  “The Institute”, so called because its origins lie in creating reading rooms for the betterment of local folk.

We have a full music and alcohol licence and we are completely flexible on bar arrangements. You can supply the alcohol or we can stock the bar and serve or sell it for an hourly fee.

The HVI is where Harlestone Manor Parish Council would normally hold its monthly meetings as this was given to the ecclesiastical parish and also our local polling station.
