For such a small village there’s so much going on. Coffee mornings of course, but also Yoga, Pilates, and meditation classes, Cinema Club, Disparate Housewives, Quiz Night, Friday Fish Night and more. See the Calendar for our regular activities and events. The Village also holds an annual Fete and Scarecrow Competition as well as the annual calendar competition.
Both the Lawson Hut and St Mary’s Community Centre are available to hire for private events.
Regular coffee mornings take place every last Saturday of the month from 10am – 12pm at St Mary’s Community Centre 10am – 12pm. There is an entrance fee of £2 which includes tea or coffee and biscuits. A few extra pennies will bag you some yummy home made cakes and there is also a white elephant stall and raffle.
All proceeds go to the Church and everyone is always welcome. It’s a great opportunity to meet other Badsworth residents and even people from further away. We’re a friendly bunch and happy to meet friends old and new.
Come and see a classic film without the long drive to an expensive multiplex. Every last Friday of the month during autumn and winter , the Lawson Hut hosts a screening of some of the best films of all time.
There is no admission fee, but donations are welcome to pay for room rent, the performing rights licence, DVD purchases and the free popcorn! Ice creams are sold in the half hour interval and you are welcome to bring your own drink (glasses are available).
Please email [email protected] if you wish to learn more, be added to the bookings list or have a film to suggest. Please note numbers need to be limited to about 40 for comfort.

“There is no true joy in a life lived closed up in the little shell of the self. When you take one step to reach out to people, when you meet with others and share their thoughts and sufferings, infinite compassion and wisdom well up within your heart. Your life is transformed.” – Daisaku Ikeda

Badsworth Social Group
Badsworth Social Group was created to bring people together following the global pandemic. The group organises regular monthly social events, plus a calendar of special events throughout the year. Drop an email to Jonathan or Andy at [email protected] if you would like to help organise or help out at an event.
Thank you to everyone who bought the 2022 village calendar. The Village Committee sold 90 copies which raised approximately £300 towards the funding of future village projects and activities.
We intend to produce a calendar for 2023, so we are asking residents to start sending in photos to be judged for inclusion. Ideally, we would like the photos to start in January and go month by month, ensuring the calendar reflects our ever changing landscape and snapshots of village life. All photos submitted should be landscape in format with a minimum file size of 2mb.
Please get snapping and send your photos to the editor of Our Badsworth Way, [email protected].
