The Hall was demolished in 1988, and for many years the site was derelict. But now in its place on the corner of Seymour and Whitcombe Street a block of flats has been built.. 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".
