Hopkinstown Community Hall is the new name for the Rhondda Ward Pensioners Welfare Hall in Hopkinstown, Pontypridd.

 

Hopkinstown Hall is in the heart of the community. It is a beautiful Wesleyan Church which was used as a hay loft during the first half of the 20th century. Since the 1950s it has been owned by the Rhondda Ward Old Age Welfare Association and now, we jointly look after and maintain the building.

As part of Summer of Fun, Citrus Arts will be running exciting family workshops in preparation for our pop-up circus festival. Come and learn the secrets of the circus!

Join us at Hopkinstown Hall on Wednesdays from 10th August to make flags and banners using silk screen printing techniques. We'll also make hoops and spinning poi! In the afternoons, we will be learning circus skills like juggling, hula hoops, poi, tightwire and all sorts!

On the first weekend of September our exciting circus festival will land at Barry Sidings Country Park for three days of fabulous free fun.

All sessions are free and delivered by our experienced tutors, in a friendly and inclusive environment.

No previous experience is necessary.

If you have any questions, please get in touch on beth@citrusarts.co.uk or 07951 015751.
