The Harpenden Society will be holding a talk on the history and the future of the Public Halls.
The public meeting will be held on Thursday, December 7, with mulled wine and mince pies.
Organised in partnership with the Harpenden History Society, the talk will focus on the history of the halls.
Recently the Halls have hosted the pantomine.
In addition, with the upcoming closure of the facility in 2020, Society member Tim Riley will speak about what will replace it.
The Rothamsted Park redevelopment will include a theatre as well as a new sports centre.
The designs for the culture centre were exhibited to the public earlier this year.
