We have been closed since mid March in accordance with the Government’s Coronavirus guidelines.

As you will be aware, many venues are now re-opening with extra precautionary measures and risk management systems in place. However, this period has coincided with the start of major refurbishment works at the Hall. So we will remain closed for a number of months to complete these vital repairs and improvements whilst ensuring the safety of our volunteers, user groups and visitors.

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.
