Welcome to the Mackrell Charity, a social and lifelong learning hub in Sturminster Marshall
The Old School, the home of the Mackrell Charity, is set in the heart of the historic village of Sturminster Marshall, next to the Red Lion and opposite the church of St Mary the Virgin.
The church which retains some Norman features, is usually open and has a series of illustrated information boards featuring all aspects of village history.
The Red Lion is open every day except Monday. It's a Hall and Woodhouse pub, serving a range of beers, meals and lunchtime snacks.
Due to the current virus issue the Old School is closed and events cancelled until the situation has passed. Follow this website for news updates.
