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.


We have started to gradually introduce an events and activities at the Hall which includes social clubs, Citrus Pips and meetings. In 2021 we along with the owners and other users of the building will be looking at developing the building even further.


Let us know what you think.  

What’ s On at the Hall
Monday 2 - Wednesday 4 August, 10am - 3pm

Next week we are really excited to be running a free 3 Day UV Glow Show Workshop at the Hall with master Puppeteer, Stuart Bawler as part of RCT’s Summer of Fun

Monday 2 - Wednesday 4 August, 10am - 3pm


Master puppeteer Stuart Bawler from Hummadruz and our team will be sharing their experiences at Hopkinstown Hall of creating artwork and stories for outdoor festivals, clubs and online.

Over 3 days you’ll write your own story and create a unique UV Glow Show on video to share online with family and friends.

Using fluorescent paint and recycled junk, learn how to design and make your own glowing puppets, from action figure size to human size: people, creatures and fantastic monsters. You’ll be learning new crafts, writing stories, and meeting people from our community.

The 3 Day UV Glow Show Workshop is free but limited spaces available. We advise booking in advance on the Book Now link below.

Find out more about Stuart and his work with Hummadraz at festival, clubs and online.
