In 1874 money was donated to the town of Caerwys towards
the building of a ' Caerwys Room ' and a further donation was provided towards setting up of a ' Workingmen's Institute '.
However, both these donations were eventually placed together and with further funding raised by public subscription, it was
decided to build a Public Hall. The agreement was that the building would belong to the people of Caerwys and the running
and upkeep to be administered by a Committee of Trustees. At the present time the Caerwys Town Hall is still administered
by trustees, who are local people from the community, together with town council representation.
The Town Hall was upgraded in 1986 /
87, mainly through funding from the then Delyn Borough Council. The Hall is of multi use both during the daytime and evening.
The weekly users range from the badminton club, keep fit group, and the evening to various fundraising activities for
the local groups and committees, and for various birthday and childrens parties. The Hall is also the venue for
annual events, such as the ABC Drama production, Mayors Civic Sunday Reception, Cor Meibion / Caerwys Choir - Young Musician
of the Year, together with the popular Brains,
Skill & Chance competitions. It is also used by the Local Member of Parliament and Assembly Member, to hold their consultations
surgeries, also as a Polling Station during local and national elections.
The Hall has kitchen facilities, together with crockery
for over 100 people. The kitchen can been turned into a fully fitted bar for certain functions. The Hall has a stage system
that can be tailored to various sizes, together with a public address system and ceiling height stage lighting equipment.
On the first floor of the Hall there is a committee
room that is used for the smaller meetings of under 12 people.
