Blaenavon Workmen’s Hall is one of the most impressive buildings within the Blaenavon World Heritage Site. The Hall, which opened in January 1895, is a testament to Blaenavon’s proud social history. Its creation was funded by the Blaenavon Workmen’s Institute, who collected a weekly deduction of a halfpenny from its members’ wages. For decades the Workmen’s Hall was the focal point of the community, providing a library, games, entertainment and recreational activities.
Today, the Blaenavon Workmen’s Hall still provides for the community with the cinema, concerts, snooker and table tennis. It is also the home for many groups and societies, and hosts conferences and meetings.
