The health and wellbeing of the community is paramount, therefore Caerphilly County Borough Council has been closely monitoring the situation surrounding the COVID-19 (novel coronavirus) outbreak, aligning our response to the Public Health Wales guidelines, whilst continuing to provide local entertainment and leisure opportunities in our venues.

In line with recent decisions, we have decided that it is in the best interest of the community to close Blackwood Miners Institute with immediate effect. All performances, meetings, dance sessions and other room bookings are therefore cancelled as from today’s date.

At this time, it is difficult to predict when the venue might re-open, but it is likely that the closure will remain effective until the end of June at the earliest.

Thank you for your support and patience during this challenging time.
