The Great Oak Hall
This traditionally built structure is located at the heart of Westonbirt Arboretum and is the hub of our charity. Take a look around inside this wonderful building...
History of the hall
The construction of The Great Oak Hall began in 1999, thanks to the generous donations from our members and supporters. Find out more about the build...
Traditional methods were used wherever possible. The frame was put together using only hand tools, though a mobile band saw was used to cut the main beams, rather than the far more laborious pit saw of earlier times!
In 2019 The Great Oak Hall is still standing strong and has come to be a focal point of interest due to its beauty among the landscape. Making the hall available for different events is a great way to enable visitors a chance to take a look. Our specialist Great Oak Hall volunteer stewards are on hand on weekends (subject to events and availability) to share their knowledge on a free guided tour.
Look out for a sign at the Welcome Building letting you know when you can take part in this fascinating tour!
