Booth Hall is located in old Catterick Village on what was once part of the Great North Road, now the village High Street.

Roman and military heritage. With over 3,100 residents, Catterick Village lies within the Richmond UK Parliamentary constituency, a few minutes’ drive east of the A1 running north. It dates back to the Roman occupation when Cataractonium was a Roman fort protecting crossing of the Great North Road travelling west over the River Swale.

Thereafter, the village became a popular stop for travellers journeying up and down the eastern area of the country, in need of overnight accommodation. Part of its historical landscape included an old coaching inn and not far from the village centre, a medieval motte-and-bailey castle. What was once an RAF airfield in the south of the village is now the Army’s Marne Barracks.

Originally, a memorial. Construction of the village hall began in 1898, a project dedicated to Major William Charge Booth. Born in 1837, Booth became a much-revered figure in the region – as a volunteer in the Yorkshire Regiment, magistrate, county councillor, active political party member and churchman. His untimely death in 1898 inspired the citizenry to name their new hall the Booth Memorial Institute in his memory.

Today, volunteer led. The hall is managed by Trustees and other residents co-opted to help them. All volunteer their time and professional expertise to further its development in the interests of Catterick Village as a whole. An Annual General Meeting to which all members of the village community are invited is held in February, and meetings of the Trustees are scheduled every 2-3 months or so throughout the year.
