Village Halls Week 2023

19 December 2022

Monday 23 – Sunday 29 January 2023

The sixth annual Village Halls Week campaign will focus on how village halls can provide warm, welcoming and inclusive spaces; something that is especially important as the country faces a cost of living crisis.

We know that volunteers work tirelessly to keep our community buildings and village halls in North, South and West Yorkshire open for the benefit of local residents, and we want to celebrate the great work you’re doing. So get in touch and tell us how you’ve made your spaces warm, welcoming and inclusive. Perhaps you’ve refurbished your hall to make it warmer and more comfortable, improved accessibility, or run a regular coffee morning. Maybe you’ve become a Warm Space to provide a warm welcome to those who may be unable to heat their homes over the winter period. Whatever it is, get in touch and let us know.

If you’re planning a special event for Village Halls Week, register your hall with ACRE here. The first 500 halls to register will receive a free pack of Village Halls Week badges and bunting, sponsored by village hall insurer, Zurich.

You can also download a poster to promote your event:

And, don’t forget to take photos of your events during the week and share them with us on Twitter using @CommFirstYorks and #VillageHallsWeek.
