Burray Community Association works to benefit our local community in Burray, and is responsible for the Burray Village Hall and the Burray Family Playpark. For more information, including details of coming events and activities, please visit our Facebook page

We recently benefitted from a £69,995 programme of extensive repair and modernisation works, funded by the Orkney Islands LEADER 2014-20 programme (£34,971.66), Orkney Islands Council (£25,423.81), Screwfix (£5k) - with the remaining £4.6k coming from the Association's own funds.

The project aimed to upgrade the fabric of the building including a new roof, increase energy efficiency by installing insulation and double-glazed doors and windows, refurbish and equip the kitchen, install hearing loops, provide table tennis equipment, projection equipment, and portable flexi staging. Watch a LEADER film about the project.

Burray Village Hall is conveniently situated just as you turn off the main A961 road into Burray Village. There is a large car park opposite the hall.  It is in the centre of the community and caters for a range of activities. There are regular meetings for a variety of craft and sporting groups and the hall also hosts many other community events.

We are fortunate in having some excellent musicians on the island and the concerts given by them are "not to be missed" events. The large main hall can accomodate 120 comfortably for concerts and there is a sectional stage which can be used for such events.


The Annual Christmas Craft Fair runs over two days in November.

The hall can seat 100 people for dining and there is a large, well equipped kitchen where food can be prepared and stored and drinks can be made. There is enough crockery and cutlery along with tables and comfortable chairs to cater for any event in the hall.

All ready for a Christmas meal

There is also a smaller meeting room which in addition to being used for meetings, is used by craft groups, the brownies and other social groups.

When they are playing at home, the Burray football club, whose pitch is just across the road, use the hall facilities for changing and showers.
