In the United States, a village hall is the seat of government for villages. It functions much as a town hall or city hall.

In the United Kingdom, a village hall is usually a building within a village which contains at least one large room, usually owned by and run for the benefit of the local community. Such a hall is typically used for a variety of public and private events, such as parish council meetings, sports club functions, local drama productions, dances, jumble sales and private parties. Village halls sometimes have charitable status.[1] They are occasionally called the village institute rather than village hall.

Welsh: Neuadd (pronounced Niath) is used in Welsh-speaking parts of Wales, as in Neuadd Dyfi, the village hall in Aberdyfi.[2]
