Village Halls Week 2023 Starts Today!

Village Halls Week 2023 starts today, and runs until this Sunday 29th January. Together with ACRE we are celebrating the many ways these volunteer-run rural community buildings support local residents, groups and businesses, particularly during difficult times.

To help raise awareness of the brilliant work that Village Halls do, and the amazing art they bring to their communities, every year ACRE hold #VillageHallsWeek at the end of January and as they are so important to Rural Touring, we think it’s vital that we show our support.

This year we are asking you to send us a 15-20 second video clip sharing your favourite moments from visiting or performing in a Village Hall, or telling us about how they have impacted you.

You can send your clips to us in advance via or tag us in them on social media this week. You can find us on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram, and make sure to include #VillageHallsWeek and @ACRE_national in your tweets. 

We can’t wait to see what you have to share. For full details about the event, you can read ACRE’s press release here
