Caerphilly Workmens’ Hall has been at the heart of community in Caerphilly for over 90 years.
Run by a small but committed group of volunteers, Caerphilly Workmen’s Hall is a community arts and entertainment venue in the heart of the town.
In 1906, a group of local workers from the collieries began the welfare movement in Caerphilly. They established a welfare organisation within the town, donating a portion of their weekly wages into the fund. In 1925, Caerphilly Workmen’s Hall was opened to the public, including a games room, a snooker room, a library and a reading room, as well as the main hall which hosted a cinema and entertainments.
In the 1990s, Caerphilly Workmen’s Hall was granted Grade II listed status. The Hall is owned by the Coal Industry Social and Welfare Organisation (CISWO) and run and maintained by a hardy group of volunteers.
