This week we’re joining in with Village Halls Week, an annual and national celebration of rural community spaces and the people whose time and dedication keep them going.
Organised by the ACRE Network, the Village Halls Week campaign runs from Monday 20th January – Sunday 26th January 2020 and sees a huge variety of events happening across England.
We’d like to help put the spotlight on Cornwall’s village halls and community spaces, so here’s how you can get involved:
Celebrate your hall
If you would like to put the spotlight on your hall there are a number of opportunities throughout the week. We would love to hear about how you’re using your village hall, what events you’re attending or hosting, and see pictures and videos of your local hall. Join the conversation on Facebook or Twitter.
You can also support and celebrate your village hall by attending one of the many events that take place – including your local C Fylm film club! Here’s what’s on during Village Halls Week:

Share your history on 23rd January
Thursday 23rd January will see halls celebrating ‘Throwback Thursday’, an online trend that looks into the past. To share your hall’s history, simply use your social media account (Twitter or Facebook) and use the hashtags ‘#tbt’ and ‘#villagehallsweek’. You could put up old pictures, old flyers, remember significant guests, share an old film or write an article on your hall’s history.
