Llantwit Major's event is taking place over the next few days, with online events including a quiz, bingo, a virtual open mic and a street disco.
In his speech opening the event, the Mayor spoke of his pride at the way the town has come together in the Coronavirus crisis acknowledged events such as this would not be possible without groups and volunteers getting involved and pulling the community together.
