Following the government announcement of another lockdown from 4th January, the village hall is once again closed. We are very sad to have had to cancel existing bookings, including yoga classes and Flicks in the Sticks, but group gatherings are currently not permissible.
We look forward to welcoming you back as soon as restrictions are lifted and it is safe to do so.
We are pleased that, as a Covid Secure venue on the English side of the border, we are still currently able to show films at Brilley Village Hall. Our next screening is:
Thursday 7th January: Little Women(cert 15) 2.30.p.m.
Greta Gerwig brings the entire March family to life like never before in a respectful but bracingly current version that is frequently funny, charming and heart-warming. It is never about anything other than the journey to adulthood of four sweet, clever young women, and in this sweeping, musical, romantic and grounded retelling, it is a delight to travel with them.
In order to comply with government regulations and, more importantly, to keep you safe numbers are very limited. Please note:
You are invited to the AGM of Brilley Village Hall which is now on Tuesday 8th December at 7.30.p.m.
Come and hear how we have been working to keep the hall open and safe during the Covid pandemic and what we have achieved over the past year.
We would really like to get more people involved in the running of the hall. Please consider if you could join our small committee. Or just come along with your ides for what else we could be doing to open up the hall to the whole community, young and old.
In order to comply with government regulations and, more importantly, to keep you safe, please note:
The solar panels recently installed on the roof of Brilley Village Hall are now up and working. Not only will this help cut the hall's running costs, but we are really pleased to be reducing our carbon footprint and making a small contribution towards climate change reduction.
The cost of installing the panels was supported by the England European Regional Development Fund as part of the European Structural and Investment Funds Growth Programme 2014-2020

Pain & Glory (cert 15)
Sunday 8th March at 7.30.p.m.
£5.50 (50p surcharge for Borderlines films)
A nostalgic, semi-autobiographical tale, following Salvador Mallo, a film director in decline as he explores a series of experiences and encounters from his past. Facing his mortality, he recalls his childhood in ‘60s Valencia, his first love affair in ‘80s Madrid, the pain of heartbreak and his fateful early discovery of cinema. A typically witty, sensuous, evocative and intelligent film from Pedro Almodóvar, it is intensely personal and beautifully produced.
Bring your own refreshments. Doors open 7pm
The Souvenir (cert 15) £5.50 7.30.p.m.
In 1980s London, amid ascendant Thatcherism and IRA violence, Julie, a young, quietly ambitious film student embarks on her first serious love affair with the mysterious Anthony. Despite the concerns of her mother and friends, she slips deeper into her turbulent relationship, finding it increasingly hard to discern fact from fiction. It’s a really gorgeous film –nostalgic, melancholy, specific and intimate. Swinton Byrne gives a star-making performance as Julie –a diffident yet passionate young woman investigating love, class, creativity and her place in the world.
Please note 50p surcharge for Borderlines films
