Newbridge Memo


Celynen Collieries Institute & Memorial (known as Newbridge Memo) are Grade II and Grade II* listed buildings in the heart of Newbridge, South Wales. The Institute building which opened in 1908 is a lasting monument to the miners who worked so hard to build it and the Memorial Hall built in 1924 serves as a memorial to the local servicemen who lost their lives during World War One.

Recently refurbished with dedication and care, the Memo has once again become a crucial hub for our local community, with a busy modern library, daily classes and events and a variety of evening entertainment. In November 2014 the Art Deco auditorium reopened its doors, filling the space with music and theatre once again
