Our annual campaign shines a spotlight on the contribution England’s 10,000+ village halls make to rural communities.

#VillageHallsWeek will return in 2024 to celebrate everything village halls can do to ‘go green’.

It will look at how buildings can be made more energy efficient, and how management committees can support sustainable and environmentally friendly behaviours in their community.

During the week (18-24 March) we will be encouraging as many halls as possible to hold their own events, share their stories and get inspiration from others.

We are also hoping to publish some energy efficiency design guidance produced by stagg architects which will feature examples of best practice from across England.

Village Halls Week 2024 Sponsors

We are grateful to Utility Aid and Hallmaster for sponsoring Village Halls Week 2024.

Utility Aid are the largest energy broker for the not-for-profit sector. They are able to help halls check if they are on the right meter profile, review the costs of existing tariffs and identify the lowest possible prices – a free audit of bills can be requested here. They also offer a national charity tender allowing groups to join together and save on their energy tariffs.

Hallmaster provides the leading online reservations system for village halls, developed in close conjunction with committee members and trustees. The system takes bookings, allows for easy invoicing and can even integrate with smart heating controls.
