The main part of Harby Village Hall is about 15 m long and 9.5 m wide (7.5 m to the pillars along its east side). It is up to 4 m high along its central axis, reducing to just under 3 m at the sides and beyond the pillars.

The hall is licensed for a maximum of 200 people in total and can accommodate about 100 sitting at tables. There are 19 large (1.8 m x 0.75 m) and 8 small (0.9 m x 0.75 m) tables available, together with about 110 stacking chairs.

The kitchen measures about 6 m x 3 m and there is a hatch/servery between it and the main hall. Kitchen equipment includes a cooker with 6 hobs and a large oven, grill, microwave, water heater, fridge and steriliser. There are pots, pans, roasting trays, cooking utensils, and cutlery and crockery for 100+ diners.

The Village Hall Committee has a license to sell alcohol, and can provide a bar service for hirers. There is 3 m long bar behind the shutters to the left of the servery (second photo).

The stage is 4 m wide, with wings about 1 m wide on either side. It is 2.5 m deep to the current backdrop, with a further 2 m behind that. There is a 5 m x 3 m storage/changing area at the back of the hall, behind the stage.

Performers have the choice of using the stage, the floor area in front of it or the space between the pillars along the long side of the hall.
