Village Halls Week 2020 – Join the celebration

Village Halls Week is a celebration of village halls, their volunteers and the services they offer their communities. This year Village Halls Week 2019 gained a lot of attention for village halls including being featured across 16 BBC stations.

Next year, Village Halls Week 2020 will run from Monday 20 January – Sunday 26 January 2020 and we want to fly the flag for Pembrokeshire. PLANED wants to celebrate the stories of village halls across our county and the people whose time and efforts keep them running.

Any activity you have going on at your hall during the week Monday 20 January – Sunday 26 January 2020 can be included as part of the celebration, so please just let us know and we at PLANED can help promote this.


The UK wide celebration includes:

Share Your History day on Thursday 23 January 2020

Share your hall’s history on social media using the hashtag #tbt and #villagehallsweek. You could put up old pictures or past flyers, detail significant guests, share an old film or write an article on your history.

National Open Day on Saturday 25 January 2020

A great opportunity to open the doors and get new trustees, new user groups and boost community engagement.


If you would like to put the spotlight on your hall, please register your interest with us.
