Our Hall, Our Story

Our Hall, Our Story is a community engagement project, which will celebrate and share Maesteg’s heritage, history, stories and memories, as told by local groups and people, which we can weave into the redevelopment plans for the Town Hall.

We are grateful to Arts Council of Wales, Heritage Lottery Fund and Bridgend County Borough Council for supporting this project.


Maesteg Photomarathon

Calling all smartphone snappers, budding David Baileys and professional photographers to pitch their pics in a competition with a twist!

Maesteg Town Hall will play host to the town’s first ever 24-hour Photomarathon from 12 noon on Saturday 7 July until 12 noon on Saturday 8 July.

Participants of all ages and abilities will have a take 10 photographs, one to represent each of the 10 different topics, which will be revealed on the first morning of the event.

At the start of the challenge, each entrant will have their phone or camera and memory card checked and verified.

At the end of the Photomarathon, all the images will be collated and printed, before a panel of judges meet to decide the winning photograph from each topic.

Prizes will be awarded for the best interpretation of the topic and have been kindly donated by local shops and businesses.

Every one of the photographs – hundreds of them – will then be displayed at a free public exhibition at Maesteg Town Hall on Saturday 14 July.

Maesteg Photomarathon costs just £2 to enter and the first 80 entrants will receive a free t-shirt when they arrive on the morning.

Bookings can be made online here!
