Celebrating 100 Years Together: Village Halls Week 2021

Monday 25 January – Friday 29 January 2021

Village Halls Week is a national celebration of the 10,000+ village halls which can be found across England, their volunteers and the difference they make to the rural communities they serve.

Our 2021 campaign will be a celebration of how village halls are survivors. Many have been bringing people together in rural communities since the 1920s. And in the past year, the volunteers who manage these buildings have shown great determination and resilience in the face of Coronavirus, negotiating lockdowns and putting in place Covid Secure measures so they could continue supporting their local community.

As social gatherings are currently off limits, Village Halls Week will look at bit different in 2021. In the past ACRE Network members have hosted various events across the country but this year we will be moving this activity online in the spirit of the times.

We encourage all village halls to join us in this national celebration:

  • Register to take part in online events (links below)
  • Follow us on social media
  • Sign our Village Halls Centenary ‘Doomsday’ Book to tell MPs about the good work you’ve been doing (coming soon!)
  • Contact your ACRE Network member to find out what’s going on locally and check this listing
