The Hall was demolished in 1988, but so far nothing has yet appeared in its place on the corner of Seymour and Whitcombe Street. You can see more pictures of the exterior of the Hall by clicking here.
Lynn Parry Thomas (1957-1964) has sent in his Entrance Pass card that he used to enter the Hall on dance nights. He comments, “I had many a happy time here on Tuesdays and Saturdays. I won several jiving competitions at this venue in the early sixties with a number of partners. Good days.”
Geoff Kerley (pupil 1962-1964, and later a member of staff at the school) described his first planned visit to this magical venue. "Before plucking up courage to go in, Keith Eynon and I decided to go across the road for a pint or two of Dutch Courage. Unfortunately such was the strength of the brew, that my head went down on the table in front of me and I knew nothing of what transpired for the rest of the evening. My father was called, and I was conveyed back to Aberaman oblivious of the night’s disaster - I never made it inside the Mem on that occasion".
