Memorial Hall.

MEMORIAL PLAQUES - CLICK HERE to see a page of information about the names on the New Quay War Memorial plaques

The hall was built, using public subscription, in the 1920s in memory of the local people who had died in the First World War. Their names are displayed on a plaque beside the entrance. A second plaque lists the local dead of the Second World War.

During the Second World War the hall was extensively used by the London Nautical School, which had been established to improve the competence of future British seamen following the sinking of RMS Titanic in 1912.

The hall was damaged by fire in 1937, and then rebuilt without the front balcony. In 2018 the hall was under threat of closure because Ceredigion County Council no longer had funding so the hall was transferred to a committee of local residents, with fundraising events to meet the costs.

The hall received a grant from the Welsh Government Community fund in 2020 and he hall was completely refurbished to modern standards.

The hall has now re-opened following the Covid pandemic, and is being used by many including the New Quay library, the Friday Community Market, the Snooker Club, the Seaside Sisters (WI), and more.

The hall has a drinks license in partnership with the Seahorse pub and hosts numerous parties and events organised by the Working4NewQuay community group.

When first built the hall has a front balcony. When it was rebuilt in the late 30's after the fire, the balcony was replaced with a new front foyer and ticket office.
