Village Halls Week 2019


Village Halls Week is happening again in 2019, following its successful launch in January 2018. From Tuesday 22 to Monday 28 January we’ll be joining with the ACRE Network of rural development charities to celebrate the impact of village halls and similar community venues.

In particular, we want to show how village halls help to tackle social isolation, giving people a local venue for activities from lunch clubs and support groups to exercise classes and film shows.

How you can get involved

Tell us what’s happening at your venue! We’d love to use your hall in our publicity around Village Halls Week so please let us know what’s going on from 22 to 28 Jan. Events open to the public in general are perfect, but we’d love to hear about anything that’s aimed at reducing people’s feelings of isolation and loneliness. Call 01962 857358 or email us.

We’ve got a poster template that we can add details of your events to, and you are welcome to download the image above for inclusion in your own publicity materials, on your website etc.

If you’re feeling enthused, you could plan an open event for Village Halls Week – perhaps a coffee morning or cheese and wine evening. This will give people an opportunity to come in and see the facilities you have, and maybe then they’ll try out one of the activities that you host or hire your hall for their next event.

Finally, if you know people who are into geocaching then they might like to get involved in the village hall series of geocaches which are being placed across the country.
