Bedwas Workmen's Hall is a volunteer-run entertainment venue in the heart of Bedwas. A theatre upstairs and an art centre downstairs, both are available for hire for a range of activities including productions, parties and music events.

Bedwas Workmen's Hall was built in 1923 thanks to local miners who together raised the money by donating a penny a week.

Night Shelter at BWH

A project in the Caerphilly County Borough has provided vital support to vulnerable people during the winter months. Now in it’s seventh year, the Caerphilly Borough Churches Night Shelter project saw volunteers at nine churches across the County Borough offer a warm bed and hot meals to rough sleepers between January and March. During this time volunteers provided over 1,000 bed spaces, along with over 3,000 cooked meals and packed lunches. For more information go to: https://buff.ly/2OTD7NV
